World Architecture Day, celebrated on the first Monday of every October, was set up by the Union International des Architects (UIA) in 2005 to remind the world of its collective responsibility for the future of the human habitat. As architects and community leaders, we have the responsibility to enrich our environment through the power of design. At Liollio, we strive to elevate the design dialogue within our community through design rooted in context, culture and collaboration. This World Architecture Day, we recognize the recent passing of Robert Venturi and his lifelong dedication to the profession.

The new Richland County library in the Ballentine area will be more than a place for children to read. The facility at 1200 Dutch Fork Road, which opens Tuesday, includes a tree house and puppet stage for play and other activities as well as perusing books, watching videos and scanning the internet.
At 13,000 square feet, the $5 million library is four times larger than the former storefront it replaces. The facility on the north side of Lake Murray is the second new library built through a $59 million bond issue approved by Richland County voters in 2013.
The expanded Blythewood branch reopens June 22.

Angie Brose and Jennifer Charzewski represented Liollio Architecture at the 2016 Fall Design Institute hosted by Library Journal in Charleston SC. This semi-annual event provides an opportunity for public and academic librarians and staff to come together and “start planning the library of the future today.” The group of about 100 toured 21st century facilities, discussed opportunities for renovating and retrofitting spaces large and small as well as planning for future projects, and explored the real-life design challenges faced by libraries through workshops and “speed sessions.” Liollio Architecture and Margaret Sullivan Studio worked with Dorchester County Public Library to provide an interactive workshop session related to activity-based programming for 21st century library services based on community needs. We may be biased, but we think we had the most creative groups and the outcomes were truly inspiring! We also enjoyed getting to know our great architectural colleagues from across the country who love library design as much as we do!
