This "archaeological library," situated on a hypothetical college campus, serves as a storage space for classical Greek and Roman archaeological finds while providing study/reading rooms for visiting scholars. The building has clear horizontal and vertical axes, which set in place the columnar grid driving the program. Columns are categorized in a hierarchy from structural to storage to ornamental. The storage columns open up to reveal shelves for valuable finds inside, providing a constantly changing interior landscape as shelves are opened and closed. The second and third floors are tiered and dedicated to study spaces, a computer lab, and a conservation lab. The exterior columns are all semi-structural but are hollowed at the core to create a paradoxical sense of stability and further engage the visitor with the timeless symbol of the column.
