WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY IN ST. LOUIS, OLIN LIBRARY 

Washington University in St. Louis, Olin Library

Olin Library is both heart and home for this leading University’s collection of books, journals, reference materials, and digital resources. ABA’s Library Master Plan acknowledges the building’s modernist strengths and supports its evolving functions and services.

Now in construction, a 40,000-sf renovation and expansion offers a new “Main Street” through its center, creating new external campus connections e and clear access to all interior Library functions and new exhibition areas. A tower structure is inserted within the building’s interior atrium, adding exhibition, seminar, and study spaces. Two new below-grade floors will house special collections, Library consultation spaces, and a new global research center. Olin will set the pace, and be the place, for deeper academic engagement.
