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.
- 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.
