Space Meditation



“Grind Room” in Neilson Library in 1926; it was an early form of an information commons so ubiquitous in today’s libraries. The room was originally located on the 2nd floor, north side of the Library (towards the campus center), where those long windows brought in much loved sunlight. Today, the stacks of the North Wing of the library take up the space.

Important: those coats, those light fixtures. The perfect room, minus the unacceptable lack of grinding going on.

This is my dream space for collaborative study space with moveable furniture, room to move around, and sunlight! #libday8
