Transparency and energy efficiency were the focus for this bookless library on Loyola University Chicago’s Lake Shore Campus. Situated on the compact campus’s only remaining open space along Lake Michigan, maximizing views through the building was critical, but without increasing energy costs. WSP USA developed the thinnest profiled structure possible to be visually exposed and integrated into the building’s energy concept.
