The void of movement within mass occurs at different scales. At the largest urban scale it is the river that defines void, while at the scale of the street a small park defines an urban corridor which moves through the given site. This void between buildings carves out a path which pulls into the Rare Books Library. The path defines both program and circulation, creating spaces of light and movement as well as places of shelter and solitude. In the heart of the building, the path opens up the space of a vertical plaza looking towards the jewel of the library, its rare book collection.
