This studio explored the role of the Library in contemporary society as technology begins to replace the printed word. Traditionally libraries have been community centers as well as custodians of knowledge. Today libraries are reinventing themselves as Learning Commons and fnding new ways to serve their communities. This project created a new model for the neighborhood branch library with an emphasis on digital technology. Located on the “main street” of Portland’s established commercial neighborhood: Multnoman Village. This studios main focus was on context, placemaking and enclosure.
