We were commissioned by NC State University to create an environmental design program for the D.H. Hill Jr. Library.
Their plans called for the renovation of three floors of the building to house a new Academic Success Center, an Office of Undergraduate Research, an interactive Innovation Studio, and a multimedia Data Visualization Studio.
This is our favorite type of assignment: There wasn’t a specific list of requirements. Rather, the library team wanted us to envision a series of visual elements to help define the spaces in an interesting and engaging way. It was a pretty open brief, leaving lots of room for invention.
