PUBLIC LIBRARY Design Studio VII Fernanda Graciano e Vanessa Soares Professors: Lucas Jordano The Public Library here is thought as a place that can offer the user a variety of different places to study, both in relation to openings/enclosures and perception of hight. The program was divided in two blocks, one for more public uses such as theater exhibition gallery and a CafĂŠ and the other with the actual book collection. The two blocks are connected with a passage way in a steel treliss that is also study/meeting area. The book shelves continue the ring formed by the treliss in plan, and are also trelisses themselves, with the passages trimming the intermidiate shelves.
