Archial was commissioned to design a new library for The University of Abertay, Dundee, which has become the gateway to the University. Three distinctive building elements reflect the very different accommodation requirements: circular lecture spaces are contained within the tall drum form, open plan library decks with a curved glazed wall provide views westward to the Sheriff Court, and service areas are housed in a solid rectangular form. A roof canopy serves to mark the entrance and unite the three core parts of the design. The library has won several awards including a RIBA Award 1998.
