[Suriano & Perry] [Library Design: Community Transformation] IFLA LBES 2016

  1. 1. LIBRARY DESIGN + COMMUNITY TRANSFORMATION
  2. 2. We mobilize around issues that move us. We place them at the heart of our business, and we have an impact on them even beyond our core expertise.
  3. 3. GLOBAL REACH 01 01 Columbus 02 Seattle 03 San Francisco 04 Los Angeles 05 New York 06 London 07 Shanghai
  4. 4. We are optimists. We believe design can solve all problems. We believe it can help individuals and societies thrive, not just survive. We believe that everyone is entitled to great design. We advocate publicly for great design and inspired buildings and cities. INHERENTLY HUMAN

  6. 6. NEW TRAJECTORY
  7. 7. A HISTORY OF LIBRARIES IS ONE REFLECTING A GRADUAL SHIFT OF CIVIC VALUE FROM THAT OF PHYSICAL ASSETS TO THAT OF COMMUNITY.
  8. 8. DISPOSITION ALONE TOGETHER
  9. 9. KNOWLEDGE HEIRARCHICAL NETWORKED
  10. 10. In 2010 Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML) set out on an aspirational building plan to rebuild or renovate 10 branches identified as most in need of transformation.
  11. 11. With nearly $100 million worth of projects in the planning phases or under construction, this was one of the largest capital improvement programs in its history.
  12. 12. NORTHSIDE LIBRARY Under Construction 2017 DRIVING PARK LIBRARY Completed 2014 DESIGN PRINCIPLES Under Construction 2017
  13. 13. DESIGN PRINCIPLES
  14. 14. GO BEYOND OPEN TAKE A POINTILLIST APPROACH MAKE ICONIC GESTURES DESIGN PURPOSEFUL EFFICIENCIES DESIGN FOR A KNOWN AND UNKNOWN FUTURE 1 2 3 4 5 DESIGN PRINCIPLES
  15. 15. A major tenet of the Columbus Metropolitan Library is “Open to All.” This alludes to access, and equality, but its contemporary mandate is one that is much more active. 1
  16. 16. Inviting, compelling, accommodating, and engaging are its new charges. GO BEYOND OPEN 1
  17. 17. The experience of navigating the Library and staff areas felt like looking at only a single shade from the Library’s palette. 2
  18. 18. New facilities aimed at introducing contrast and variance to liberate spaces from a blanket of sameness. TAKE A POINTILIST APPROACH 2
  19. 19. The once inherent value and distinction of the physical space has waned and that there were becoming too few reasons to make the trip. 3
  20. 20. Design must send clear signals that express the core of the Library’s purpose and encourage meaningful engagement MAKE ICONIC GESTURES 3
  21. 21. Outdated layouts and organic changes over time have left the Library with spaces that hinder the staff’s full potential as they contribute to the mission and vision. 4
  22. 22. We can foster innovative thinking by designing spaces that make inspiration and collaboration requirements on par with efficiency DESIGN PURPOSEFUL EFFICIENCIES 4
  23. 23. The acceleration of change and the uncertainty of what’s next can prove an almost crippling burden when planning decades ahead. 5
  24. 24. Providing nimble but not neutral spaces will allow change while maintaining a consistent vision. DESIGN FOR BOTH A KNOWN AND AN UNKNOWN FUTURE 5
  25. 25. DRIVING PARK
  26. 26. The new DRIVING PARK branch library is at once addressing the challenge of what it means to be a library in the information age, but also tasked with providing a community with a much- needed catalyst for solidarity and positive change.
  27. 27. HOW DOES THE PHYSICAL SPACE OF THE LIBRARY MANIFEST ITSELF IN A WAY THAT IS RELEVANT TO ITS CONTEXT AND COMMUNITY AS AN EXTENSION OF THE LIBRARY’S VISION??
  28. 28. The Driving Park neighborhood has one of the highest violent crime rates in the City of Columbus.
  29. 29. New Site Old Site
  30. 30. TRADITIONAL LIBRARY
  31. 31. CURRENT DRIVING PARK PLANNING APPROACH HIGH DENSITY SPACE (UTILITY) MEDIUM DENSITY SPACE (BOOKS & CIRCULATION) LOW DENSITY SPACE (STUDY & READING)
  32. 32. REORIENT BUILDING
  33. 33. CUT AND FLIP TRADITIONAL PROGRAM INSIDE-OUT
  34. 34. CUT AND FLIP TRADITIONAL PROGRAM INSIDE-OUT
  35. 35. CUT AND FLIP TRADITIONAL PROGRAM INSIDE-OUT

  37. 37. NEW CONCEPTUAL ORGANIZATION
  38. 38. NEW CONCEPTUAL ORGANIZATION
  39. 39. SHIFT ZONES TO ACCOMODATE OUR SPECIFIC PROGRAM
  40. 40. BREAK BUILDING TO CREATE ENTRY CONNECTING STREET & PARKING
  41. 41. BOOKS FOLLOW CIRCULATION DEFINE SOCIAL SPACE
  42. 42. DEPRESS QUIETER SPACE RAISE ACTIVE SPACE
  43. 43. INTRODUCE LIGHT WELL
  44. 44. HIGH FLEXIBILITY LOW FLEXIBILITY
  45. 45. CONSTRUCTION COMMENCED ON JULY 31ST 2013. THE BUILDING OPENED TO THE PUBLIC ON JULY 12TH 2014.
  46. 46. INCREASE IN VISITS INCREASE IN HOMEWORK HELP USE INCREASE IN COMPUTER SIGN-UPS INCREASE IN MEETING ROOM USE INCREASE IN CHILDRENS BOOK CHECK-OUTS STORMWATER CONTROLLED ON SITE 60% 140% 70% 350% 212% 89%
  47. 47. NORTHSIDE
  48. 48. The NORTHSIDE LIBRARY currently sits at a junction of four significant urban vectors in Columbus and rather than one single contextual driver, the library is a reflection of this unique junction, as such celebrating the scale, material and vibrancy of these neighborhoods.
