I am an architecture student, it has been my dream to become an architect. As I reach my 5th yr it has been already the architecture students job to do the thesis in which only a few will pass. It has made me nervous for i don’t like to fail with this big task.
For the past months, me and my partner Francis has been working so hard to come up with the best and well research and designed proposal. We work the thesis for a school year. The first semester was lent to be the research process, in which our task is to find a proposal and give the research which consist of the chapter one:the proposal, to our coordinators.
We didn’t even had a semester break and a holiday, well we actually did but it was not like before were we spent more time with friends and our family.
We come up with the proposal “Interactive Library” An Architectural Integration of a Park in a Library to Enhance Learning and Mental Focus of Users. We actually did change the Proposal Tittle several times just to make it clearer, also that the tittle itself can already explain what is inside our proposal.
This proposal was inspired of the national library in France, though it has some mistakes in users flow and etc. we were able to learn from it.
Another is the Library in Singapore and in China, which is done with legible research, design and construction.
We have come up with different schemes and sketches, changes were made with the help of our adviser. We’ve gone with mistakes but in the end we have able to correct those mistakes.
We focus more on the maintenance of the park and the security of the books. We discover Hypoxic Air venting system, a link will help explain it http://archive.ifla.org/IV/ifla71/papers/063e-Madsen.pdf
And other facilities that will better the environment of the Traditional Library.
THE DESIGN CONCEPT
Here is a short explanation of our concept why we come up with this proposal.
The concept is to take the public library model as a suitable platform for the application of information culture for a developing information society. The new public library will provide for a change from a passive relationship between library users and library staff to an active engagement of everyone for a productive, meaningful and profitable involvement. The new information ground will appeal to everyone, young and old, the youth especially will be enticed to engage in the building and become active users and ultimately the teachers. The spatial environments will be designed for culture of sharing and peer learning, and like an urban thoroughfare, the spaces will accommodate these moments at any given time.
