Johns Hopkins University, Brody Learning Commons

Baltimore, MD | 2012

Brody Learning Commons furthers the Eisenhower Library's role as the intellectual, social, and physical heart of the Homewood campus and gives users a portal to the physical and virtual resources of the Sheridan Library system.

The technology-rich Learning Commons includes group study spaces, seminar rooms, and a state-of-the-art lab designed to integrate the role of scientists into the field of paper and manuscript conservation. The Rare Books and Manuscripts collection is on prominent physical display, supplemented by digital presentation of materials that allows users to compare and contrast different editions of rare documents in virtual and physical form. An atrium, which provides a transition between Brody and the Library allows natural light to reach the lower levels of the Library while providing a civic space for the Learning Commons and the library community.

Brody Learning Commons is LEED Gold Certified.
