This building, which includes a research library within the structure, represents a major addition to an existing research facility at the University of Colorado-Boulder. The library facility within the new building is oriented to use by the academic community, particularly scientists working at the institute. 
An important project goal was to knit together a portion of the campus community that had been divided by the site on which this building was constructed. The new building faced a large,
abandoned sea of asphalt that served as a cover for a large underground diesel fuel storage dump. This abandoned area was converted into a landscaped plaza at the main building entry.
