Exhibition Design

Yale University International Room at Sterling Library

The International Room, a research and information center in Yale’s Sterling Library, is the hub of the school’s many and varied international activities. To celebrate Yale’s global presence, Spagnola & Associates created an exhibition that balanced content with clarity, highlighting collections from five museums and four libraries, spotlighting scores of graduate and undergraduate programs, and conveying the university’s vast resources without overwhelming visitors. The centerpiece of the 1350 square foot room is a world map. Spagnola & Associates designed the map, which is made up of crests from each of the Yale graduate schools, symbolizing Yale’s international presence around the globe.
