As it grew, the physi-cal space became fractured and the need to create new types of spaces that enhances fel-lowship and foster dialogue became a primary design driver. The design for the new CSoT/ Pitts Library reflects an Italian hill town design and provides an interior “street” that bisects the building and connects at its apex to the historic quadrangle. Interconnecting pathways and spaces encourage structured gatherings and serendipitous encounters. The design team transformed this challeng-ing site into a building that accommodated a variety of spaces effectively within Emory’s Italianate palette. A lively visual dialogue is established between the numerous spaces by designing the internal street to provide spatial variation and textural interest, unifying modern elements with these Italianate references. Carved into the hillside, the building links the lower entry to the Rudolph Plaza, which contains the Cannon Chapel and serves as a symbol for CSoT’s core spiritual purpose.

Emory University—Candler School of Theology/Pitts Library and Center for Ethics

Founded in 1914, the Candler School of Theology (CSoT) at Emory University occupied one of the original prestigious campus buildings on the quadrangle. As it grew, the physical space became fractured and the need to create new types of spaces that enhances fellowship and foster dialogue became a primary design driver. The design for the new CSoT/ Pitts Library reflects an Italian hill town design and provides an interior “street” that bisects the building and connects at its apex to the historic quadrangle. Interconnecting pathways and spaces encourage structured gatherings and serendipitous encounters.

The design team transformed this challenging site into a building that accommodated a variety of spaces effectively within Emory’s Italianate palette. A lively visual dialogue is established between the numerous spaces by designing the internal street to provide spatial variation and textural interest, unifying modern elements with these Italianate references.

Carved into the hillside, the building links the lower entry to the Rudolph Plaza, which contains the Cannon Chapel and serves as a symbol for CSoT’s core spiritual purpose.
