The Brooklyn Public Library approached VisionArc, to work in collaboration with Toshiko Mori Architect, in the goal of rethinking and remapping their system of materials circulation in its Central Branch building.

The BPL Central Branch is the main hub that sorts and distributes library material to the larger Brooklyn Public Library system. VisionArc studied the macro-system as well as the specific transfer nodes to identify challenges and opportunities within the materials handling process. A series of mappings and conceptual guidelines were developed to aid library administrators with system upgrades and architectural strategies as part of a larger capital project initiative.
