Ringling College of Art & Design

Goldstein Library


The Alfred R. Goldstein Library at the Ringling College of Art and Design is a state-of-the-art building that seeks to transform the way that users engage with library collections and services. Architecturally stunning, it is an active physical and digital destination on the Ringling College campus – an intellectual, cultural, social, creative, and technological hub alive with the ebb and flow of students, faculty, staff and visitors.

A Design-Forward Library of the Future

After carefully studying the needs of students, faculty and librarians, the architectural design team set out to create a contemporary building that would greet visitors and serve as a comfortable, familiar space.

Devotion to Quality Craftsmanship

In quiet, contemplative spaces like a library, attention to detail and craft really do make a difference. Considering occupants spend large amounts of time in these facilities, any additions need to be a thoughtful part of its long-term environment.
