In partnership with the Boston Public Library and the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners, the Library Journal Design Institute hosted the New Face of the Library event on December 5th. The design and library building event invited librarians, architects, and product vendors to discuss critical topics which included shrinking collections, product trends, and collaborative, maker spaces. Oudens Ello Architecture was a sponsor for the event while also participating in the library design challenge sessions and the expert panel forums.
After many months of design the Eastham Public Library is finally under construction! Some of the OEA team drove down to the Cape for the ceremony. Seen here are a few of the library staff and trustees, excited for work to begin.
OEA’s selection as architect for the new museum facility was announced at the gala event, located on the front lawn of the Marine Hospital site in Vineyard Haven. The Vineyard Gazette describes the event as the largest in its 15-year run.
