TheeAe Architects Gosan Library Design Perspective
Design Description The   first   ideas   we   aimed   for   this   library   was   that   it   should   have   private   reading   area   with   opened   arcade.   In   order   to   achieve   it, the   distance   of   book   shelves   each   other   was   developed   based   on   necessary   space   allocated   for   people   looking   for   a   specific book   section   and   for   people   who   want   to   take   a   time   to   sit   and   enjoy   reading   in   private.   By   this   arrangement,   a   unit   of   book shelves area was created and it is arrayed in a direction to make a form of architecture.

Design Concept The   advanced   technology   of   reading   materials   by   computer,   Kindle   and   even   cell‐phone   devices   helps   people   easily   access   to information   even   way   much   more   than   what   library   could   provide   in   last   decades.   Therefore,   the   main   function   of   library seems to have a change in order to accommodate the current trend of getting and providing information. As   for   designing   a   new   library   in   this   era,   our   design   concept   is   to   agree   that   people   are   in   need   of   finding   places   to   sit   and   get relaxed   for   getting   information   from   books,   magazine,   articles,   etc.   Thus,   the   expanded   program   for   the   local   community   by providing   classrooms,   and   exhibition   area,   lecture   room,   semi‐private   reading   areas,   digital   data   corner,   etc.   will   be   another major   change   in   current   library   system.   We   believe   not   in   a   dramatic   way   but   strongly   the   new   design   of   space   that   should convey this change in a way to enhance and motivate public to come and enjoy the use of library.
Then,   it   has   been   horizontally   inclined   each   other   to   a certain    degree    by    providing    enough    entrance,    book shelves,    semi    private    open    reading    area    one    after another.   By   doing   so,   its   shape   seems   more   naturally formed   as   books   on   a   shelf.   The   space   that   we   imagine for   the   library   was   all   about   user   friendly,   so   the   space should   be   well   lighten   by   the   sun.   Hence,   a   mass   of rectangular   is   stretched   to   pass   through   the   each   book sections   to   get   a   proper   opening   with   lights   from   the sky.   Also,   parking   lot   entry   was   designed   in   the   same manner.   For   the   better   use   of   this   extensive   sunlight, we   brought   Kalwall   (transparent   wall   system)   into   our main     design     elements.     Its     transparency     is     to     get enough   brightness   from   the   sun,   and   at   the   same   time, its   heat   resistance   also   good   for   a   climate   like   Daegu with four distinct seasons. In addition,   its   easy   construction   method   would   be   even beneficial for the realization of the project.

The   structure   system   we   expect   is   basically   reinforced   concrete   structure.   Its   structural   mega   walls   (bookshelves   walls)   act   as columns.   With   floor   slabs,   they   will   act   as   a   truss   system.   Thus,   for   the   mechanical   design,   we   locate   the   space   on   level   3   floor for   its   easy   ventilation.   The   interior   air   flow   will   easily   resume   from   the   top   floor   to   circulate   air   into   lower   floor   which   return   air will   be   located.   The   travel   of   the   air   will   easily   flow   from   the   inner   surface   of   shelves   at   walls   and   under   the   roof   area.   Plus,   the opening area from the north to the south will create natural ventilation of interior space. We   strongly   believe   that   those   sustainable   design   approaches   to   this   library   apparently   support   the   community   well   with   its   well lit opened, yet privately separated space, as well as its energy savings.
