In late summer of 2019, Temple University in Philadelphia debuted a landmark new main campus facility, the Charles Library, designed by Snøhetta, a firm internationally recognized for their groundbreaking library projects. The building provides the university with an iconic academic facility that has been envisioned throughout as a catalyst for learning and intellectual engagement, as an environment that cultivates and supports scholars and the scholarly enterprise, connecting people and ideas in a compelling resource- and service-driven environment. This session provides an overview of the planning, design, and realization of the project, culminating with an opportunity to tour the facility.
