AE interests: Built on a triangular site based on a continuous concrete strip that was folded in size time to create each level of the library. The library features laminated timber staircases and a central atrium that creates a spatial continuum via its long, exposed, and uninterrupted diagonal steelwork on the floors and walkways. The atrium of the library contains a series of daylight spaces and central ventilation which creates a sense of transparency eliminating the boundary between the inside and outside of the building.
