Wells Library. Collaborative, active learning. Unposed. Love the open book next to the computer.
Information Commons. Informal, collaborative. Bi-level. Glass wall for group study. Mature white-haired guy in center, working quietly in the midst.
Large monitor for group work, print materials nearby.
Research and Information Commons
3-story atrium, variety of work spaces, video wall, books on far perimeter, red chairs for accent.
One of the first things you do in a Commons is have a party. Invite the suits.
