The Cheryl and Philip Milstein Center for Teaching and Learning at Barnard College in New York has been honored in the 2019 Prix Versailles Awards. The project was selected as the winner of the Special Prize Exterior award in the campuses category. The program is organized in association with UNESCO and the International Union of Architects.
The Milstein Center is a new kind of library. The design infuses a variety of study spaces with opportunities for creative, exploratory learning. All departments and disciplines across the Manhattan campus are linked to the library, which is directly connected to a range of flexible teaching spaces, including centers for pedagogy, empirical reasoning, digital humanities, design, and media, as well as laboratories for computational science and the study of movement.
