London School of Economics, The Women’s Library Collection


The London School of Economics (LSE) is home to The Women’s Library—the oldest and most extensive collection of material on women’s history in Europe. For LSE, Ralph Applebaum Associates created a space to host exhibitions drawing on the Women’s Library and highlighting the school’s tradition and patronage of research, learning and knowledge exchange. The new Library Gallery experience blends media, digitized documents and imagery with real artifacts. Two showcases present compelling objects and documents with interpretation; one of them is set against a spectacular, digitally updateable, media wall with shifting, contextual, digitized documents and photos.
