Olin Library was built on the site of Boardman Hall (old Law School) on the south side of the Arts Quad. Yellow limestone masonry and sculpture from Boardman were incorporated into the first floor. This area contains offices and public spaces. In the setback, rectangular block above are the stacks. Much bulkier and overpowering than Boardman, Olin takes its cues from neighboring buildings: the roof height and smooth masonry facing from Stimson Hall, chevron pattern from the roof of McGraw Tower, and the mansard profile from the roofs of the stone row buildings.
