The new library and lecture hall for this central Connecticut school is sited as a physical and academic center for the school, linking the original 1920's quadrangle and a later development of science, math, and athletic buildings. With its large lawn, the clapboard building completes the original quadrangle and provides a setting for outdoor study and for graduation exercises. The building is designed as a simple shed, with major spaces deforming the roof at each end and two small "buildings" that denote the entrance and a reading room. Clerestory and sky-lighting bring natural light into the structure, and with the large glass areas, break down the separation of inside and outside.
