ARC5001 [05] LIBRARY FO 400,000 BOOKS

ARC5001 [05] LIBRARY FO 400,000 BOOKS

This was the first major project undertaken in year 2 during the Autumn semester.

The brief was to design schedule of accommodation for a university library to house 400,000 books and ancillary accommodation.

The site is found in Birmingham’s new ‘University Quarter’ located in Birmingham’s Eastside.

My concept revolved around using the angle present in the park and osculating it, thus creating the form. This idea is post present on the outside facade and the inner atrium.
