JUNEAU - The design team of ECI/Hyer and the Alaska Division of Libraries, Archives & Museums will host an open-forum workshop June 24 for the upcoming state Libraries Archives and Museums Project.
The workshop is an opportunity to discuss the site master plan, the concept for the new building, sustainability, and design ideas. The workshop will be held at the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council building at 350 Whittier Street, Suite 101, in Juneau.
The LAM project will result in a joint facility in Juneau for the state libraries, archives and museums. The current facilities are overcrowded and some are in disrepair, according to the state.
In 2002, the Legislature appropriated $1.5 million to buy a 1.58-acre vacant lot in Juneau next to the Alaska State Museum. In 2006, the Legislature granted $1.4 million for pre-planning and a needs assessment. In 2008, the Legislature appropriated $7.5 million for architectural design of the LAM project. That work is ongoing.
