Entrance on the North East Corner
As a class we did a design charrette during class on friday october 8th. My group came up with three ideas for building shape and orientation on the land available to the library. An L-shaped library, a square library, and then 2 overlapping rectangles. My group thought the entrance would be best on the North East corner of the building because of the main roads that would trickle into Lee street from that direction and it would keep the entrance on the corner of benbow and lee street.
