Arcadia University Landman Library

The arc of the library façade embraces the campus green, welcoming students to Arcadia University’s center for study and learning.

This expanded library includes reading rooms facing the campus, and intimate enclosed group study spaces that overlook sheltered gardens. Accessible stacks are housed in older portions of the building. This competition-winning expansion design accommodates 150,000 volumes, a multimedia collection, the college archive, and a curriculum library for the education program; study seating for 300 students in reading rooms; group study rooms and individual carrels; multimedia classrooms; and the Beaver College Room. Controlled daylight and focused views are key elements of this campus landmark.
