Improving the Visitors’ Experience of the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building

Made by TingTing Gao Carrie Tsang Marcelo A. Mejía Cobo Shixiao Wang

The current layout of the New York Public Library Schwarzman Building isn't structured and doesn't allow for a clear journey for users. Therefore, unfortunately, people can't understand the library's offerings.

We set out on a mission to elevate the experience for all visitors. This would promote the library as a premier cultural institution.

Faculty: Claudia Bernett.
