Berlin State Library
This studio theme is re-interpretation "Berlin State Library". The library was completed from the planned start-up of 1964 after 14 years, it is the posthumous work of Hans Scharoun. Why now, we chose this library on the subject of " re-interpretation ". We, from the place to discuss that thing, let's start the challenge.
The library is located very near "The Neue Nationalgalerie (1986)" designed by Mies van der Rohe.
In addition, it is also the stage of the movie " Wings of Desire (1987)" directed by Wim Wenders.
When we are experiencing Berlin State Library, we notice that the fact that one and variety make a relationship at the same time. Experience when you are walking in the city, and it should be cherished when you think about the human and the community that are in the city, which is similar somewhere.
By all means, let's consider the architecture and human beings to share location that emits vividly life force. Let's enjoy the architectural design beyond the way to solve only in the program.
Please see "Minna no Mori -Gifu Media Cosmos- (Gifu City Library)" (Toyo Ito) ,also.
The process is as follows:
① Start from going to Berlin State Library (or make a model 1:50 to experience space).
② Based on the space experience, what is fresh now? What are you lost now? Or whether no way
be considered at this late hour such a thing? And discussed, such as setting their own
"possibility of architecture."
③ Based on the above setting, you can design the same scale of the library. While kneading the
strategy, site is set that yourself. Please consider the relationship with the surrounding
environment of course.
④ Design and Esquisse：If you create a model, not only look from the top, that you look into the
medium. Let's walk around inside the architecture. The found it, please also represented in the
drawings. (It is a failure that there is no drawing)
⑤ The middle critique : make 1:100 model.
⑥ Esquisse 1:50 scale：Please develop the internal design. Such as the diagram model Drawing,
pouring the consciousness also to those that re-presentation architecture.
⑦ The studio critique.( the end of the year or early next year) Then brush up.
⑧ The final critique.
⑨ The guest final critique.
We expect an interesting architectural design. Not only large model, also drawing required.
