The School of Media Studies will be hosting Re-envisioning Branch Libraries Design Study Presentations with co-sponosor, Center for an Urban Future and in partnership with Parsons School of Constructed Environments.
New York City’s 207 branch libraries are serving more New Yorkers in more ways than ever before. In conjunction with the Center for an Urban Future’s ongoing research on branch libraries in New York City, The Architectural League collaborated on a design study to articulate new architectural, financial, and programmatic possibilities for these essential, neighborhood-based resource centers. During the event, the five design teams will present their research and designs in depth at this public event.
The evening will include:
Welcome: Rosalie Genevro, Executive Director, The Architectural League of New York
Introduction: David Giles, Research Director, Center for an Urban Future
Presentations by: Interdisciplinary design teams led by Andrew Berman, Architect, SITU Studio, Marble Fairbanks, MASS Design Group, and UNION
Discussion: Moderated by by Shannon Mattern, Associate Professor of Media Studies, The New School
Reception to follow.
Additional information on the design work produced by this study can be found on The Architectural League’s website.
