HONORABLE MENTION: Redesign your school library | 2013 National High School Architecture Competition #324
Curious about the instructions for this library design problem? >>
As our school population is growing and the use of technology in the school is expanding, our schools educational center, the library, is becoming overcrowded and is not as effective as it can be in helping students progress their knowledge. The library at any school, past and present, is the center of all learning. It is the place where students can go to find sources for a paper, read an award-winning book, finish some homework, or just relax. After three years in high school, I have started to notice that our library has become overcrowded and at times can be very hard to concentrate in. I believe that the solution to this is not relocating the library, but instead finding a way to utilize the space we have and brainstorming a more efficient way to use the technology that is available.
In my design I hope to utilize the current footprint and structure of the library while creatively solving our problem of overcrowding. As a result of utilizing technology and collaborating with students and staff, I hope to provide a modern, relaxing, and sustainable learning environment for decades to come.
