      Hello everyone!
      I can´t seem to find floorplans from the Paul V. Galvin Library anywhere. I believe it´s important to provide more context of the site we chose and its relationship with the library, if someone has an idea of where can I find it, it would be really helpfull, thanks a lot!

      Hello Diana,

      The floorplans of the Paul Galvin Library would be nice to have indeed. Unfortunately, we did extensive research ourselves and were unable to find them. We even contacted the IIT and SOM about getting them but didn’t hear back. If we do, we’ll sure make them available to download on the site.

      However, considering how the Library is inspired in the Crown Hall and Mies’s concept of Universal Space (which we talked about on some of the lecture and which you can also learn more about in this YouTube video) it would not surprise us that the main floor is a fully open space divided only by furniture. Again we do not know this for sure, but it’s an educated guess 😉
