Architecture students create furnishings for library

May 01, 2013

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- One section of the Freshman Architecture studio class, coordinated by professor Nida Rehman, spent the last several weeks of the spring semester designing and building two new furnishings for Penn State's Architecture and Landscape Architecture Library — a wall unit in the vestibule and some outdoor seating. The library is located in 111 Stuckeman Family Building.

The students worked closely with the library staff and conducted research on library users. In addition, they visited the “Art’s Critique of the Library” exhibit currently on display in the Special Collections Library, 104 Paterno Library, to garner ideas for their project. The Libraries supplied about half of the money for the building materials.
