The library

The library of today is no longer solely about gathering information and reading books. In today’s library, one finds a cultural program aimed at connecting people and enabling them to learn. Is becomes a central place, where people gather. The framework that gives form to this new cultural building is composed of a hybrid structure. Concrete and timber elements are combined to carry the building’s loads, whilst at the same time they contribute to the character of the building.
As a result of the structural system, repetition in elements and hierarchy between spaces have become prominent themes in the building. The 130-meter length of the building contributes to the notion of repetition, whilst slight diversions of the grid, in combination with lowered and raised ceilings in the interior enable the hierarchy between spaces.
