Project Description

(“Text as submitted by architect”)

The proposed work is a single huge object installation made by stacking hundreds of transparent acrylics one after another.

The 960 transparent acrylics that exist as the background of the library project the surroundings, transforming the library into a beautiful and gigantic temple of books.

Inspired by the huge bookshelf of the library, hundreds of acrylics in the shape of bookshelves always change depending on the viewing angle and the movement of light, providing a colorful landscape.

This diversity is in line with the wish of Byeolmadang Library, which wants the various dreams and hopes of people who come and go to the library to shine in their own colors.
