A library brings daylight into the lowest levels of stacks and study areas.


 
RMA’s library is the first building on the CEPT campus not designed by Balkrishna Doshi, the school’s founder.


 
It defers to the earlier brick-and-concrete buildings but distinguishes itself with a much lighter façade made up primarily of operable wood louvers.


 
To avoid exceeding the height of the existing campus buildings, the architects submerged three of the library’s six stories below grade.



 
Light filters through the adjustable louvers, reaching almost to the building’s lowest levels.

 

 
Students, faculty, and visitors enter the lobby via a bridge that spans the interstitial space between the library’s inner and outer skins.

 
Carrels and other study areas surround and are distributed among the book stacks.
