A Case Study: Cleveland Public Library Facilities Master Plan


Reflecting on its 150-year history, Cleveland Public Library (CPL) sought to develop a Facilities Master Plan to chart the bright future ahead. This session will unpack the resulting document, presented as a graphically rich 400-page book, which sets new design principles, explores case studies of specific branches, compounds local and global statistics, and inspires a holistic vision for CPL’s future. Since its public release, the plan has inspired wide-spread recognition and excitement amongst residents, city officials, and the public. This session is presented by Aaron Hill, AIA, LEED BD+C, Prinicpal at Bialosky; Ben Crabtree, AIA, Senior Associate at Bialosky; and  Mike Huston, PE, CEM, CBCP, LEED AP BD+C, LEED AP ID+C, Senior Associate at Bialosky.
