Andrea Quilici, AIA, LEED AP, has been appointed to the national Architecture for Public Libraries Committee of Core, a division of the American Library Association.

Core’s mission is to cultivate and celebrate the collective expertise of library workers in core functions through community building, advocacy, and learning. The Architecture for Public Libraries Committee disseminates knowledge, tools and best practices concerning library building planning and design.

Andrea is a senior associate at Quinn Evans and an expert in library design. He has been instrumental in the design of award-winning public libraries, including Fairfield Library, Libbie Mill Library, and Varina Library, which won a national Library Building Award from the American Institute of Architects and American Library Association.

Andrea is involved in several on-the-boards library projects, including new libraries in Suffolk and Newport News, Virginia, and Newark, Delaware. He is also contributing to the major renovation and underground expansion of the Southeast Library in Washington, DC.

Andrea holds a Master of Science in Urban Design from Eriot-Watt University in Edinburgh and a Laurea in Architecture from the University of Florence in his native Italy. Now a resident of Richmond, Virginia, he serves on the steering committee for the city’s Cultural Heritage Stewardship Plan and served on the city’s Urban Design Committee from 2017 to 2023.  

The future paradigm for libraries centers on digital transformation, lifelong learning, and the integration of emerging technologies to provide innovative and relevant services to diverse communities. I’m looking forward to learning from other library design professionals and sharing Quinn Evans’ own expertise, particularly our approach to community engagement.
