The project of the new “Mies Memorial Library” is an opportunity to confront and measure oneself with the teachings of Mies, which characterizes the IIT Campus.

The “MM_L2” with its “L”-shaped system reads and interprets the existing, placing itself and anchoring within the grid, binding to it through physical and visual alignments.

A large podium that looks towards the Crown Hall unites and connects the two arms of the “L” becoming its fulcrum, thus creating a new spatial conformation for the Campus.
