Library of our dreams

This project was developed by Tiffany Sheldina Yarde as a student from Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro and was submited to the WAS awards 2017 under the Facilities category.

Ufrj is a univerisity city on fundao island where the proposed library will be located. As a result of the faculty of architecture having a fire, the students do not have access to a library for their studies and researches. The Area have a great value because it it great and is close to the actual faculty. It can accomodate aproximately 600 persons with academic areas, sleeping areas, administration and such. In the middle of many difficulties was born this idea, the extraordinary building now not to beonly creative, but practical for the faculty, and invites other faculties. The chosen heightis the average heights of the surrounding buildings which creates an equilibrium and gives the expression that the building is a small staircase.
