Programmatic building

Daniel Chorley
ARC605 | Fall 2009

This project sought to create a more legible and intuitive library by arranging similar programmatic elements next to each other and by separating user spaces from spaces for holding books, articles, etc.

Step 1: Separation of interactive and personal spaces within the library without alterations to the existing form.
Step 2: Alteration of the form of the library to reflect the vertical shift from open public programs on the ground to closed private programs on top.
Step 3: The personal section remains unchanged while the interactive space is altered, connecting the two sections in one specific location.
