Changing the Conversation: Bold Idea Leads Historic Landmark into the 21st Century
5/18/2017, 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM
The St. Louis Public Library successfully transformed their 1912 Cass Gilbert building into a modern and more accessible public jewel by stepping outside of preconceived notions. It started with a surprising idea that captured the imagination of library leadership – a great example of why it’s often necessary to change the conversation to transform the future. Working collaboratively to explore the bold idea led to a clear shared vision and a strong architectural concept that guided a diverse group of stakeholders and professionals. See and hear how the creative process employed on this project may be applicable to your projects, regardless of size or type.
