Transforming the Library Environment with New Furniture

Howard University is going through a transformation of its Undergraduate Library and Founders Library. The objective is to enhance the capabilities of the libraries as learning spaces. Our team has been testing furniture in the library environment to learn about student behavior. The product demos allow our team to test how students will work with the new furniture in the library. It helps the library staff define what types of furniture will transform the environment.

Examples of library collaboration in action including space for individual and group workstations help our team define the requirements for the new design.

Below are pictures of the library design & furniture demo.
