Daegu Public Library
Competition 2012

By elevating the library, large parts of the site is kept open and accessible as public space. The set back of the ground floor diffuses the building envelope and connects it to the surrounding public space. The elevated library offers views over roof tops, tree crowns and the surrounding skyline. The abdomen of the uplifted volume constitutes a fifth facade, patterned with reflective tiles, making the buildings interior it's main face. The architectural sensibility elaborates thinness and thickness, contrasting and coupling up these qualities creating material and spatial sensations.
