Last time, I talked about what I tried to quote and how it exploded. Now, we are expected to work also with a topography and because there is topography we have to find an adaption of the topography. This time I took something small that it can easily fix to topography. It was ‘Pods’ from Bishan Public Library. Those pods used as reading areas in Bishan Public Library and they were inside and façade of the building, so I thought ‘WHAT IF THOSE PODS IN BISHAN PUBLIC LIBRARY FORMED AROUND A CENTRAL MASS?’ and this became the general approach of my design. I put the pods around the rare books area in The Beinecke Library.
I got some critics from our instructors. They said it has potential because of its transparency feature and the books that occur from empty areas and so on. But they don’t like the relation with the topography. Actually, I also don’t like it but times you just did even you don’t like it. Also, the position of the pods seems as problematic. They can be more related, have some shifts among themselves. I got my critics and I will work on more.
You can see the photos of the model and quotation sheet below.
