The big blank concrete central library of the Shoolini University in Solan, over looks a beautiful green valley. Conceptually, this four floor structure is an intense interconnected volume of voids and solids, connecting the entire building as a large functional plate.
The court yards connect play fully in voids and volumes as they broaden up to the terrace to become a natural container of light. This unrestricted light but controlled temperature and views bring the required climatic control within the building.
The spatial superstructure and the exclusivity of the elevation, elevates the role of the library on the campus and evaluates the campus for its international sensibility. It gives the university an apt image, an ideal icon.
