The smart design behind Salem State’s floating stair

Thursday, 12 December 2013

Smart design stands on its own – sometimes literally.

That’s the case at Salem State University’s Berry Library: the design thinking behind the library’s open stair gets top billing in “16 smart solutions for architects, engineers, and contractors,” a feature in the December issue of Building Design & Construction.

The feature outlines the design challenge and the solution developed by Shepley Bulfinch and engineering firm SGH, working together to create the stair’s elegant floating form.
