BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY, PROVO, UTAH
The addition and remodel of the Harold B. Lee Library consisted of a three-level, underground addition to the main campus library. Landscaping and walkways cover most of the addition, maintaining the preconstruction character of the major campus quadrangle above.
The first underground level comprises classrooms, book stacks, and study areas, while the second level below houses book stacks and study spaces, a 200-seat auditorium, and a Special Collections section with exhibits and archival storage areas. The third and lowest level contains mechanical and electrical equipment. At grade level, a glass-encased entry links the original library building to the underground addition.
