The figures that inhabit architectural and landscape renderings are not the actual focus of the drawings. Homeowners, children, pets, shoppers, and condo-dwellers are included to convey the scale and functionality of a proposed design. They humanize and create an emotional appeal in what might otherwise appear to be sterile environments and allow the client to imagine how a space will be used. From the watercolor Victorian to the scalie hipster, this exhibit features more than a century of designers’ representations of people from the Environmental Design Archives.

Take a look - maybe you will find a new study space. (And remember that you can learn more about our study spaces on the Library's website.)
East Asian Library
One of my good friends introduced me to this library by saying it was one of her favorite places to study, With the amazing view, large windows, and personal cubicles, I now know why she feels that way. I’ll definitely be coming back here to study.
