First Place

Digital Humanities Lab in Sterling Memorial Library, Yale University

New Haven, CT

Designed by James Gamble Rogers in 1931, the Franke Family Reading Room originally served Yale University’s Sterling Memorial Library as the Reserve Book Room and later as the Periodicals Room until becoming storage swing space. Together, the team of Apicella + Bunton Architects and Whiting-Turner transformed the historic library into the now cutting-edge headquarters for digital humanities research. Beautifully renovated and restored, the space includes office, breakout, and presentation areas fully equipped with sophisticated computing capabilities. An open-ceilinged glass cube serves as a striking juxtaposition to the carefully repurposed bookshelves and provide a space for specialized project studies.
