Library like a mountain /2021

This is a proposal for an idea competition for the reconstruction of the Shizuoka Prefectural Central Library. The proposed site is a parking lot in front of Higashi Shizuoka Station. I proposed a “centripetal, mountain-like library” that would be appropriate for the space in front of the station, and that would also have the aspect of a park or plaza open to the surrounding area. A ramp leading to the roof is provided not only from the inside but also from the outside, so that the library becomes a park-like place open to the city even when it is closed. The building is connected to the station at the second floor level and has multiple ramps around the building for easy access and barrier-free access. By designating the second floor and above as pedestrian-only areas, we have clearly separated the vehicular and pedestrian traffic lines to ensure safety.
