Karen Gives Lecture at Lawrence Technological University College of Architecture + Design on Re-envisioning Libraries

March 30, 2022

Karen recently spoke at the College of Architecture + Design, Lawrence Technological University, as part of a three-part lecture series titled “The Future of University Libraries.” Karen’s talk, “Re-envisioning Libraries,” addressed the evolution of both public and academic libraries and their roles as critical social infrastructure. As a bonus, she got to stay in LTU’s Frank Lloyd Wright house – the Affleck House in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, built in 1941 and recently restored.

The series continues through April, offering students the opportunity to reflect on important questions around the future of library design and consider how spaces will be designed to accommodate the growing and changing needs of society.
