Feasibility Study Open Forum

After a ninth-month process, the McGill Library Feasibility Study’s Project Team  proudly presented the results of Fiat Lux: Let There Be Light at an Open Forum in the Library’s Cybertheque on October 15, 2015. Dozens of McGill students, staff and faculty converged to hear about the prudent but ambitious vision behind the project to reimagine the McLennan-Redpath complex for the 21st century. The Project Team explained the methodology behind the design, shared the architectural and structural vision for the site and detailed the potential phasing implementation options.


Dozens of McGill students, faculty and staff attended the Open Forum.
