A Look at St. Norbert College Mulva Library Design Features
Link to December 23 Green Bay Press-Gazette article, "Mulva Library uses light, space to create atmosphere".
Excerpt: Yes, there are rows and rows of book stacks in the Mulva Library at St. Norbert College. But the designer also created an aura of contemporary openness that's sometimes playful on the eye.
"I think what the designer had in mind was this very interactive, very connected social space," Michael Flynn, project manager, says of Hillier Architecture of New Jersey.
"It's just multilayered. There's lots of glass, a lot of shapes and spaces, both positive spaces and open, or negative, spaces that I think have a real interesting interplay with the amount of glass, the amount of light."
