Estorie - Library in Hyde Park
Conceptual Architecture Design Competition | 2017 Spring (Ongoing)
"Library of Story Telling"
Estorie, the Anglo-French root of the word “story,” deconstructs a traditional library to tell the story of communication. By separating the areas of the library, each individual pod seamlessly integrates into the park, leaving the trees intact, and defines a specific time period in the history of stories. Chronologically inspired, the theme of each pod reflects a different medium of communication: pictoral, oral, written, and digital. Users can enter the story at any time and be enveloped in a unique experience expressing the history of storytelling through design.
