Building consists of four main parts.

LIBRARY, FOYER, EVENT AREA, AUDITORIUM.

LIBRARY;

The heart of the library is Ligthcone in the middle which is surrounded by two main reading halls and entrance hall in three different floors. A strong visual connnection is created by a big gallery gap which also seperates the library part from other functions in the building. Behind the reading halls 11 floors of bookstock is placed for more than 3 million of books. Beside three main reading halls, special reading areas and rooms for researchers, academicians are also planned and connected to the bookstock with bridges at some points.

FOYER – BRIDGE;

Foyer is thought as a small city square where public can navigate freely and enjoy the space. Foyer is at the height of +11.00 m and accessible with two different paths/stairs attached to the facade of building. These paths are becoming parts of the landscape which lead people inside the building. All the entrances of main functions are placed here. Under the Foyer part , Event Area takes place at +0.50m.

EVENT AREA;

Public is the keyword. Building with its surrounding would host as many events as possible which are related or non-related to the functions inside and bring people together and create a kind of SOCIAL AURA around. Event Area is mainly placed at +0.50m ground level, where the building is lifted up to create an extra volume. A CAFÉ takes place here and services to this area. This space also connects the north-east border of the main project site with City Museum.

AUDITORIUM;

Auditorium services to 1000 people. The whole system is designed suitable for theatre plays, concerts as well as conferences. Except auditorium function, another volume is attached to here which contains management department. Beside these main functions, underground parking, infrastructure spaces, vertical circulation elements, etc. have been solved coherently to design.
