Robin Hood L!brary Initiative : A Conversation with Architects Tod Williams and Billie Tsien

Web Abstract: 
With support from the New York City Mayor, corporate donors, and a team of volunteer architects, the Robin Hood Foundation and New York City Department of Education are developing a blueprint to turn elementary school libraries into vibrant centers of teaching and learning that will serve as both a resource and catalyst to improve instruction. Each library is equipped with the latest technology, a carefully selected and extensive collection of books, and flexible space to accommodate multi-purposes. To date the Robin Hood organization has built 31 libraries. This is a conversation with architects Tod Williams and Billie Tsien, and Joe Daniels and Ankur Shah of Robin Hood about the initiative.
