Library for the 21st Century

Public Library

This project began with the design of a ‘humble’ and ‘heroic’ space, which is then modified to create a library in Brisbane City. The Heroic space features a large glass curved void that extends across all 4 levels and houses the books along one side of it. On each level there are bridges that span across the open void and lead to smaller study spaces on the other side. Below the open void, under a thin pool of water sits the humble space. The fractured light that penetrates the water layer creates a calming movement of light in the humble space.
