O'Neill Library was designed by The Architects' Collaborative (TAC), who designed several other well-known buildings, such as the MetLife Building (the Pan Am building at the time it was built in the 1960's) in New York, the JFK Office building in Boston, and the Walter Gropius Haus in Berlin. The group was founded by Walter Gropius, one of the preeminent architects of the 20th Century, known primarily for his foundational work with the Bauhaus movement. The hallmark of TAC was not necessarily the style of its designs, but its commitment to a collaborative design process.
