Daegu Library, Korea


the project is contained in a dense surrounding of domestic scale buildings - a palimpsest of low-rise structures. the volume is generated based on a simple folding technique. one single folded surface defines the roof, walls and floors. it appears therefore as a landmark with a strong presence and slim silhouette towards the adjacent avenue, and simultaneously connects to the smaller domestic scale in the back of the site. the building could be understood as a mediator between the different scales of the surrounding.
