Avery Library

The 28,000 sq ft award-winning extension to Avery Hall provides the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning & Preservation with two lecture halls, an exhibition space, a drawing archive, and additional space for its internationally acclaimed library. 

The library space includes a 12,400 sq ft reading room, reference center, book stacks, offices, and a rare book room. The two-story addition is underground to preserve the limited open space in this part of the Columbia University campus.
Skylights fill the spaces with natural light.
