BUTTERFLY STUDY CENTRE
The inspiration for this project is the popular chaos theory kno how big or small can have deep impacts into the future, which into the lives and futures of the students who use it.
The butterfly itself was a great source of inspiration, one that I transformation. This obviously was the perfect symbol for a bu es ahead. Although it is frowned upon to take inspirations liter consideration the site, I wanted a light feeling to the building as

own as the Butterfly Effect. According to this theory, an occurrence no matter is befitting as one small building like this project here can have a deep impact
I took quite literally.It is a symbol of rebirth,renewal, self improvement and uilding where students come to learn and to better themselves for the challengrally, the form of the butterfly was something that I found suitable. Taking into s if it was gently resting on the landscape.

COMPETITION | 2020 PROJECT TYPE : LIBRARY SOFTWARE USED: SKETCHUP,ENSCAPE,AUTOCAD This competition prompt was to build a compact modular library for the digital age where the goal was to not only be a place to hold information but a place to gather socially. The library was designed to be as aesthetic as possible to serve as a tourist location but also to help give the neighborhood a sense of pride. In today’s age of social media, architecture has become a canvas for many people’s selfies and posts, creating an aesthetically pleasing building will attract more people to the building which in turn will help create new social interactions. The inspiration for the project was the little free libraries you may have seen around your city. It was a suitable inspiration as the mini libraries are perfect examples of small compact libraries. Mini libraries are often shaped as birdhouses, this naturally influenced the design of the building.
An observation on how library layouts are that the books and shelves are not really a part of the structure, most of the time they end up dividing the space then really being a part of the structure itself. In this project I wanted the floorplans to be nice and open for roaming and not have the shelves in the way, where there can be more of a focus on social interaction and at the same time showcasing the books.
