The library is composed of a combination of different programs with open ones like the reading room, city room and collection room. The open programs overall form a giant ‘reading room’ that extends from façade to façade. It becomes a central space where one can look up books from racks, read at tables or have a coffee. The room is surrounded by openable and closable glass facades that show the park and city.
This city room, on the other hand, is composed out of a series of smaller rooms and gardens that each contribute to the usage of the square. These are the true public parts of the building whilst enclosed connected through the cabinets allows the possibility enter adjacent program spaces including theatres, lecture halls, shops, archives and offices. The lawn can be used for picnics, whilst the garden for relaxing, sitting and offering a more contemplative space.
