dc.description.abstract The program is the development of a library for Smith College to house the collection of poetic works by Emily Dickinson. The library is the result of an examination of creating an architectural space that generates the delight of the sublime and approaches the personal terror experienced by one who suffers from agoraphobia with panic disorder. The siting in the garden and the architectural decisions in the building of the library are chiefly generated with consideration of the work of Piranesi and Hopper, and the writings of Edmund Burke and Thomas Weiskel of such issues of extremes as delight and pain, the infinite and the graspable, vastness and minuteness, light and dark, life and death.
