LLC Library & Learning Center

             
                 

Description

    • The new library and learning center rises from the center of the campus.
      In the 136 m long, 76 meters wide and 30 m high building, including library, study spaces, lounges, copy shop, cafeteria and an auditorium.
      The design follows the form of a rectangle and has inclined and straight edges. The new Library and Learning Centre rises as a polygonal block from the centre of the new university campus. The LLC’s design takes the form of a cube with both inclined and straight edges. The straight lines of the building’s exterior separate as they move inward, becoming curvilinear and fluid, generating a free‐formed interior canyon that serves as the central public plaza. All the other facilities of the LLC are housed within a single volume that also divides, becoming two separate ribbons that wind around each other to enclose this glazed gathering space.
