The addition and renovation of Saarinens Library and Museum at Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield, Michigan aims to integrate a new building into the existing fabric of a campus. The new building is an extension of the Art Academys purpose. In order to designate an appropriate site for this new addition to the Cranbrook campus, a careful evaluation of the Cranbrook landscape was undertaken. This investigation revealed three distinct landscapes within the campus. The new museum and library acts as a mediator between two of these; the orthogonal landscape of the Academy of Art and the picturesque landscape to the east of the campus grounds. The new building also respects an existing east-west datum, creating a plaza between the two programmatic elements (the library and the museum). In order to further mediate the relationship between the two landscapes, a new north-south datum is established at the museums edge, creating a pathway into the picturesque landscape. The new datum terminates into the circulation core of the library which is a triple-height volume containing a large central stair connecting all the levels of the library. The museums galleries are split into two volumes; one relating to the campus, and the relating to the picturesque landscape beyond. This split in elevation is acknowledged by a light well that visitors pass through via ramps to get to either side. At the end of the campus gallery sequence, the Cranbrook room provides in-depth information about the campus and wide views out to the landscape.
