Research Libraries: Georgia Tech Selects Two Architecture and Design Firms For Library Renewal Project

From Georgia Institute of Technology:

In early January, the Board of Regents selected LP3, an Atlanta-based multidisciplinary design firm, and BNIM, a Kansas-based designer of high-performance environments, to create a cohesive design solution for the Library Renewal Project.

“We’re excited to see what innovative solutions come from this partnership,” said Catherine Murray-Rust, vice provost for Learning Excellence and dean of Libraries. “Both firms have experience with mid-century buildings and bring distinctive strengths to the Library Renewal Project.”


Construction is tentatively set to begin in 2015. Until then, both firms are collaborating with Library staff to integrate feedback from campus stakeholders into the overall building design.
