It has a distinctive original design like a  canyon ball-shaped design. After servel drafts  designer William Pereira, because the structural elements were deemed as being too space-consuming, the structure elements were moved to the outside of the structure, essentially resulting in the current “lantern” design. In the early 1990s The Library Addition, was designed by Gunnar Birkerts. One unusual feature of the library is that the lower levels are numbered 1 and 2, and the upper floors numbered 4 through 8. The third floor doesn’t exist, it is actually an open/outside floor  and this space it is used for emergency. Geisel Library is a very beautiful library where all the students can study and enjoying this distinctive design.
