Project Description

The library space is a continuous open platform. Its form resembles that of sand dunes where spectator catches expansive view standing on top of the ridges, while space becomes intimate at the valleys where views are rather restrained. Browsing through the collection, locating a specific book and reading at a comfortable space happens at various spot of the library providing experiences across a wide range of spatial scales.

This establishes a constant flux of part to whole relationships. Instead of prescribing a linear library experience, the design attempts to create only the basic framework that imposes minimum interferences on the way in which the space is used. Free to exploit the potentiality of specific parts of the library, microcosms within the larger shared environment is, then, recognized through interactions between people and people, people and space, space and environment.
