Inga Saffron Says

Temple University's new master plan calls for a change in location for the new library, originally projected for Broad Street. But in a forward-thinking shift, it has now been "moved to the university's natural core, near its iconic bell tower." Saffron continues: "Instead of just adding another isolated architectural trophy, Temple is using the $190 million library project to launch a long-overdue, place-making effort." Construction on the new library is expected to commence later this year and is estimated to be completed in 2018. [Philly.com]
