Odegaard Undergraduate Library in Seattle, Washington by The Miller Hull Partnership

Sunday, January 19th, 2014

Article source: The Miller Hull Partnership

The interior renovation of this library at the University of Washington not only transformed an outmoded 1970s-era building but also reimagined the learning experience for students in the 21st century. The project also recognizes the inherent sustainability in renovation and reuse of a facility versus building new. Removal of the building’s most dominant feature—the imposing central staircase—essentially “found” an additional 6,000 square feet of previously underused space, the equivalent of 36 dorm rooms.

Old Market Library in Bangkok, Thailand by TYIN tegnestue Architects

Article source: TYIN tegnestue Architects

The Old Market Library is built in a 100-year-old market building. The section for the library measures 3×9 metres internally, with a back yard facing a small canal. The roof and the walls were in very poor condition, and consequently any new element had to be self-supporting.

MUNICIPAL LIBRARY AND READING PARK in Murcia, Spain by Martin Lejarraga Architect

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

Article source: Martin Lejarraga Architect

Design concept

The project comes out of the creation of a new topography that indexes and qualifies this zone of expansion in Torre Pacheco, on a plot of public equipments; a urban, cultural and enjoyment alternative for the citizens.

The folded plans of the area characterize the performance, in which both equipments that occupy the plot, Library and Park, adapt their relative position, creating new spaces protected from reception, communication and stay.
