Little Library | A digital library in a remote town

Save

Information

Brief for the competition “ Little Library” is to design small-scale library that can serve as a medium of knowledge and is able to boost community development.

A library is an educational medium that not only sheds and informs us through knowledge but also encourages its users to grow and share ideas. It gives a safe platform to get lost as well as find yourself.

In today’s context, how can we inculcate this culture with the help of architecture?

Shakotan is a remote town in Hokkaido with no public or other libraries. To visit one the people have to travel to Hokkaido.

How can a small-scale digital library enrich the community of Shakotan?

Can spaces provide easy accessibility and multifunctionality to do so?

The library space should be optimized for not more than 90 users.

 

OBJECTIVES

  • Affordable: The design should induce affordability and spaces of easy access.
  • Compact and Digital: The library should be compact with provisions of new digital trends.
  • Lean: Must be most resourceful and multifunctional by least amount of consumption.
  • Universal: The model must be universal, which the community can replicate.
