Future Library Competition
9 locations in Greece
"Future Library" , a non-profit organization that belongs to "Stavros Niarchos Foundation", invited cube concept architectural office to a closed competition, for the design of a formula, in order to renovate 9 different library spaces in Greece. The general idea behind our design concept, was to create a relaxed and cozy environment where people can "unfold" their knowledge, skills and socialize with each other. We did some research on different styles of learning, and we found out that there are many ways on acquiring knowledge, depending on the user's preference. There are the traditional learners, that acquire knowledge by reading; there are the visual learners, that mainly need information to be represented spatially and with images; there are the auditory learners, who absorb information best through the sense of hearing (that could be through a discussion or a lecture) and finally there are the kinesthetic learners that absorb information best by doing, experiencing, touching, moving or being active in some way.
