New Main Library at Goodwood, East Baton Rouge Parish
Joint Venture as "The Library Design Collaborative"
LEED Silver Certified Library in the Park
The Library Design Collaborative is a joint venture team working with the East Baton Rouge Parish Library and BREC to develop the parish’s new main library in Independence Park. The Library in the Park is a collaborative effort between Tipton Associates Exterior Architect of Record, Dewberry Interior Architect of Record, and CJA.
Embracing its location and inviting patrons to participate in their surroundings, the ultimate product is a true success story – the concept of “library in the park” translated into a reality not only connects the library visually and physically with its environs but engages the public in an exciting new way.
