SPOTLIGHT: Moffitt Library’s Architect

Architect Jennifer Delvin is in charge of redesigning UC Berkeley’s Moffitt Undergraduate Library. Few quotes about her experience:

On persevering: I’ve been working on it seven years. It is starting construction as we speak. It will be completed in the spring of 2011.

On touring Moffitt Library: I walked through with a lot of other architects who were all competing for the project. I was there in the morning, in the afternoon. I didn’t go at 2 a.m. when you see it in its true form.

On renovating Moffitt: It is 1960s concrete brutalist. I think the bones of Moffitt are good. I wouldn’t dynamite it. I’d clear it out, open it up. Bring some daylight in, update the furniture, make it comfortable. It’s dreary at the moment.
