As usual, we have final juries at the end of the semester. You know, this semester we were assigned to design a library with the help of references. From the beginning I have two main references an I tried to improve those references. First one is pods from Bishan Public Library and the second one is dominant transparent element from the Beinecke Rare Book Library. I tried to modify the pods around this transparent element. In Bishan Public Library those pods are using for isolation and only for reading areas. So, I tried to expand this idea as a whole library. You can find my previous jury by clicking here and here.
About the jury… Well, I have a lot of confusion about the Jury because it was in an unexpected time. Any way… Before Jury, I made a mistake, I didn’t include the floor because I thought they were blocking the seeing the pods. I drew them you can see them in the poster but not in the model. So, it was a crucial mistake and it was criticized.
As a positive point, jury members have positive thoughts on my drawings. And I took some useful comments as well. For example, the wall of the pods can be movable pods so that they can change according to need. I think, this idea has potential in my design. During jury, I was like I wish I thought this before 😀
