University at Montgomery
University at Montgomery selected Sherlock, Smith & Adams to provide
complete architectural, engineering and planning services for the Rosa L. Parks
Library and 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.
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 TUM 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.
