Hayden Library Reinvention

The Arizona State University Hayden Library Reinvention modifies the Tempe campus building into a hub of 21-st century discovery, innovation and learning. The project helps materialize the vision of ASU as the New American University and the leading center for global interdisciplinary scholarship and discovery.

The creation of new entrances on the main level uses the space more effectively. With the inclusion of updated technologies, the reinvention will provide classroom, collaboration and study space to promote student success.

The modifications include an increase to the building’s square footage, main level expansion, and full renovation of all five levels of the building’s tower portion.
The addition of welcoming environments, reinforced physical and visual connections on and in the building helps Hayden Library reposition itself to support students at the center of the Tempe campus.
