reading in the reading room

Third year undergrad Architecture project Autumn 2008. Instructor: Jrgang Chi

Concrete reading room. 
The aim of this project was to design a small isolated structure to serve as a reading room and storage for books, with a focus on materiality and lighting conditions. Working with concrete, I cast this model (1/2"=1') using wood formwork in which I etched the representational form lines and used finish nails to create the look of tie back holes. The cast stair also serves as the book shelves.
