With a renovation of Charles Hayden Memorial Library, the MIT Libraries aim to create physical spaces that reflect the library of the future — one that is more open and participatory and that invites users to make connections between ideas, collections, and each other.

These intersections come together in Kennedy & Violich Architecture’s design for the renovation, “Research Crossroads,” which creates multifunctional areas for individual study and collaboration, creativity and contemplation, and explorations of the tangible and the digital.

This exhibit brings together items from Hayden’s past — archival materials relating to its planning and dedication — with the vision for its future in a celebration of the library’s enduring role fueling research and learning at MIT.
