Becker Morgan Group Principal Brad A. Hastings, AIA, LEED AP, recently attended an executive education seminar at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design.
The three-day program, The Future of Library Design: Physical Libraries in the Digital Information Landscape, included lectures, tours and team-based exercises on the planning and design of libraries. The course discussed the theoretical and practical, covering topics including new service goals, space-planning standards, and library programming and planning considerations.
Staying abreast of emerging trends in library planning and design allows Becker Morgan Group to design libraries that will serve their communities now and well into the future. With the evolution of the digital landscape, libraries’ roles have transitioned from a location to collect and organize print resources to a space for community members to create, collaborate, inspire and discover.
Hastings leads the firm’s library and education sectors, and has served as principal-in-charge on numerous libraries and media centers in Delaware, Maryland and North Carolina.
Recently completed projects include Lewes Public Library, Delmar Public Library and Laurel Elementary School.
Becker Morgan Group staff members participate in continuing education on the latest trends in educational and community design, to be of best service to the firm’s clients and communities.
