Creating a New Campus Centerpiece
The University of Virginia’s College at Wise campus has developed rapidly over the past decade. The new library is sited at the center of this development, creating an important link among the upper and lower campus precincts.
Located on the side of a 60-foot hill, the library design creates a much-needed, direct vertical pathway between campus levels and a secondary circulation serving secure library areas. The building will also facilitate a projected increase in the college’s residential life program by providing 24-hour common areas for individual and group study and social activities.
