The Fleming Library, one of the first buildings on the campus, had been used for multiple functions over time. With the relocation of the Library at another location on campus, this building, which is located right at the entry of the campus, was seen as a prime spot to house key administrative personnel. The design concept was to reinforce the history and heritage of the campus while acknowledging and artfully integrating a modern vision for the campus. The existing materials, such as brick, steel trusses and exposed wood roof structure are showcased in the inherent design of the building. New materials such as stark white drywall, contrasting cmu, wood and glass, symbolic of the modern world are juxtaposed against the existing, emphasizing the sharp contrast and the harmonious co-existence of the old and the new.
