The Library of Light

The Library of Light is primarily a library which offers spaces of art therapy, yoga and meditation, inspiring creative thinking and self-development for a wide range of people. It allows for improvements of mental wellness and immersion, for younger and older users of the building.

The notion of duality is a concept I have explored within my design. The Library of Light interacts with the user by creating differing atmospheres which are in duality such as light/darkness, compression/release, silence/sound, and water/land. Balance is a key principle of this building.

Compassing a whimsical journey: creativity, individuality and a sense of organic sensitivity floods the Library of Light.

Our personal journey is explored and enhanced through our individual experience of the Library of Light. The aim is to find our own light.

BArch Architecture

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.
