Library for Climate Science

"Architecture should not determine human behavior but rather enable possibility". The premise of Building Anti-building operates by creating user-driven spaces, empowering them to manipulate their own built environments, and paving the way for future needs. The program of the library is relooked as a People’s Workshop (click to access animations)  - a place solely fueled by the activities of the people inhabiting it-questioning the existing knowledge, adding to it, exploring, collaborating. To facilitate a vast multitude of activities, the building becomes a mere system that enables people to manipulate their own built environment by plugging into the system.
