Group project completed by Stephanie Gettins and Carly Frey. This project was broken down into two phases, one focuses on researching the needs of the client and two, developing a re-design that met all of the stakeholders needs.
Phase one of this project was to research, explore, and examine potential opportunities for existing library needs and develop a creative solution that would meet the future needs of a university library. Phase two included redesigning the already existing spaces on the 2nd and 3rd floors of Strozier Library, including a classroom and library.
