Weaving as wayfinding

ARC605 | Fall 2009

As the graduate library for UB, Lockwood should have more presence on campus, with entrances that face both the parking lots and Founders’ Plaza. A weaving structure was chosen to distinguish Lockwood form surrounding buildings on campus and to create an intuitive flow within. On the interior, the woven elements form various types of study spaces, furniture, and partition walls in addition to serving as light modulators.
