BEDFORD LIBRARY

THE BEDFORD LIBRARY - A REGULAR BUILDING IS IN NEED OF A NEW INTERIOR. UNABLE TO SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING INSIDE, THE OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY WITH THE SPACE MEANS THE FUNCTION COULD BE ANYTHING.. A  HOTEL, OFFICE ETC. MY QUESTION - WHAT MAKES A LIBRARY A LIBRARY AND HOW DO THE USERS BEHAVE IN IT. STARTING WITH A MASK THAT IS BUILD AROUND OUR FIVE SENSES, THE IDEA BEING THAT IT COULD REACT ON THE PERFORMANCES THAT ARE NEEDED IN THE LIBRARY, WHCIH HIGHLIGHTED THE DIVERSE FUNCTIONS THAT A LIBRARY NEEDS. THE ARCHITECTONIC INVENTION WAS TO WELCOME EVERYONE. TAKING AWAY THE STEAL FRAMEWORK AROUND THE LIBRARY AND USING THIS FOR THE INTERIOR WOULD ENABLE THE SEMI PUBLIC SPACES TO BE USED FOR PEOPLE TO COME TOGETHER AND SHARE THEIR KNOWLEDGE. A HOTSPOT FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD, WHERE THEY CAN TALK ABOUT CURRENT ACTIVITY AND DEVELOPMENTS IN THEIR SURROUNDINGS. LECTURES WLL BE GIVEN, BOOKS PRESENTATIONS WILL HAPPEN AND DEBATES WILL TAKEN PLACE.
