Arts district update
Stanford News published a report about ongoing construction and other progress toward completion and opening of the University’s arts district complex adjoining the Cantor Arts Center: “Now, the most visible and audible construction project dominating the arts district is the McMurtry Building, the new home to the Art & Art History Department and an interdisciplinary hub for the arts at Stanford.
It is on schedule for completion in summer 2015….The art and architecture library, the building's middle floor, is a ‘floating’ glass box supported by two double cantilevers. The library supports both online and analog research, and there will be dedicated carrel space for doctoral students. At the intersection point between the two strands, where both staircases meet, the library offers views of every floor through the central glass oculus.”
