The LIBRARY Concept combines the ideas of spatial manipulation to create a space for contemplation and relaxation whilst gathering knowledge and exploring new and old worlds.
Spaces to feel comfortable and others to intrigue are all tied together with unique elements of structure and a uniformed design. Rigid materials used in unique ways, inside and outside, combine to create a new type of library that enables the freedom to experience spaces however desired.
By adding an art gallery filled with conceptual works and a pavilion to create a separated space of unexpected interest, the project has various uses all separated but centred on the experience gained from the architecture and how it shapes the concept of the library.
The BArch (Hons) in Architecture course is focused on the creative and practical development of architectural design, investigated in a studio environment through a series of carefully considered practical and theoretical projects in a variety of spatial, social, cultural and topographical situations.
The purpose of the course is to align architectural concepts, thinking, techniques and values with current architectural thought and practice. It involves strategic thinking and creative imagination; problem-solving and research tasks; attention to detail and tectonic resolution; traditional and digital forms of representation; and public presentations and reviews. This course addresses the challenges of designing for diverse communities and cultures and develops Part 1 graduates with creative vision, practical skills and an ethical position in respect of the role of the architect in a globalised world.
