E x t e r i o r

Built in 1964 the Charles Hayden Library was designed by Arizona architect Frank Henry. The building was paraised for its economy while responding the the future needs of the university as well as the students. Today the central library on the largest university campus in the nation is in a state of degradation. The original intent of the library to house books and provide students with a place of quite repose on campus has been systematically undermined by a series of architectural missteps. These missteps include changes with the original design as well as a 1986 addition. The driving force behind my design was to focus on the aspects of the building that are simply not working in their current state. Concept: Create a 21st century library that opens its doors to students, rather than retreat behind concrete walls. Walls become a metaphorical door, in order to presence the program of the library in the heart of the university.
