|sketch showing how the circulation desk is going to connect the whole building, we haven't decided on a single unifying element right now but it will span across the whole building.|
After our presentation at O'Brian-Atkins as a class we knew we needed to come to a consensus on some of our design concepts. So we decided our main design drivers were Lifelong Learning, Community, sustainability/cradle to cradle, and also designing in way that would encourage inter-generational learning.
We also need to relate the interior of the space to the exterior of the library (i.e what interior architecture is!)
We also came to a consensus that the central circulation desk should somehow be the unifying element for all the spaces. However, there was some debate as to what the circulation desk should be, should we just have a 'book bar' instead of a fixed desk??
