Queen’s University Library held a number of design charrettes  last week where faculty, staff, students and alumni brainstormed ideas for Stauffer Terrace. The outdoor space is located on the second floor of the library overlooking Union Street adjacent to the Alan G. Green Fireplace Reading Room.

The Stauffer Terrace project supports the Library and Archives Master Plan’s recommendation of converting unused or underused areas in Queen’s libraries into study, social and event spaces. Ideas gathered during the meetings will inform the redevelopment project, which is in the early stages with scope and timeline still to be determined.
