Abstract: The Charles Library at Temple University, in Philadelphia, sets high expectations for what a modern library should be. The soaring and dynamic spaces made possible by the building’s innovative steel structure allow for study and collaboration spaces that fit modern students’ needs. Despite major design changes at the start of construction, the school’s vision was achieved: a multiuse building that serves as the focal point of an architecturally evolving campus.
