Claire T. Carney LibraryUniversity of Massachusetts Dartmouth

Conceived in 1963 as a utopian campus community by the celebrated 20th century architect Paul Rudolph, the UMass Dartmouth campus remains a tour de force of late 20th century architectural exuberance and optimism. Completed in 1972, the cast in place concrete Claire T. Carney Library is the centerpiece of the concentric campus plan. designLAB architects has undertaken a $30M renovation/addition to the 160,000 SF library that involves a complete upgrade of all systems and a 27,000 SF addition to accommodate a new entrance, group study spaces, a cafe, and a lecture space.
