Description : The "seamless approach" is the best strategy for planning additions to existing academic library buildings. Additions to existing library buildings are becoming a fact of life at many colleges and universities. Space considerations, the need for proximity to existing space, and the desire for a unified appearance usually preclude designing a totally new structure in many cases. So adding on to existing space is not only the best option for many academic libraries; it's the only one. The Catch-22 is that there is usually little to be gained by attempting to impose a too-modern structure on existing buildings. The solution is a seamless approach that incorporates and enhances the features of existing structures. The result is usually a functional and appealing addition, rather than a design that meets space needs but looks like an afterthought. Using case studies, Planning Additions to Academic Library Buildings profiles three academic libraries that went through expansion. The editors and authors clearly describe both the challenges and the opportunities for planning seamless and successful additions to existing buildings. Photos and architectural plans and layouts effectively illustrate how the challenges of adding on to existing structures were met in three different situations. Planning library additions can be a daunting proposition for many librarians, who are forced to become space planners and architects. This readable and well-illustrated book clearly and cleverly outlines the steps and the success stories of those who have lived the experience of designing a seamless library addition.
