Modular Building Design
Education - Public Mobile Library
Gross Size of Project:
- Architectural Excellence
It is an eco-friendly Public Mobile Library that brings resources outside of the library’s fixed location to users who otherwise may not get a chance to benefit from them. It also effectively extends the reach of the library’s safe learning and social development areas. Being able to offer library services and experience within a larger area is extremely beneficial for library users and also a great way to activate library non-users.
- Technical Innovation & Sustainability
Public Mobile Library can be easily disassembled and moved to new locations, includes a number of sustainable features, such as solar power and integrated rainwater collection systems. The resulting project combines solar panels, passive solar strategies and a highly insulating envelope to achieve its energy-plus goals. The house is built almost entirely in wood, pushing the structural capacities of this natural and sustainable material to its limits.
- Cost Effectiveness
Public Mobile Library is designed using the prefabrication system that minimizes construction costs as well as waste.
