The Process

Moody Nolan was selected to plan, program and design this state-of-the-art Library Learning Center Building. The facility is focused on a modern design that evolves in bold new ways to meet the current and future needs of Texas Southern University’s students.

From the beginning of the design process, a coalition of individuals representing TSU students, faculty, administration, and community members, participated in meetings, surveys, and opinion gathering media to share ideas and collect data, imperative to the development and implementation of the new library learning center. The entire building encompasses a café, classrooms, book stacks and computer labs, study areas, offices, meeting and board rooms as well as gallery space. Additionally, the building houses the TSU’s faculty senate, IT department, serves as an Honors College, and provides an alumni suite.
