ROSA L. PARKS LIBRARY & MUSEUM, CHILDREN'S MUSEUM ANNEX
Troy University Montgomery Campus
Troy University selected Sherlock, Smith & Adams to provide complete architectural, engineering, and planning services for the Rosa L. Parks Library & Museum and Children’s Museum Annex. The building is approximately 55,000 square feet on three levels and is the new flagship structure for the revitalized downtown campus.
A modern two-story entry lobby with balcony seating areas overlooking the new clock tower and plaza complements an exterior that is sensitive to the aesthetic character of surrounding buildings. The landscape and streetscape are designed to produce a seamless connection with the plaza and define the extent of the campus. By carefully programming and planning the type and location of adjacent spaces, the design team was able to solve a complicated spatial program with a simple, well-organized plan on a restrictive urban site.
