B7_#070 // The Library // Elif Öngüt
As the brief suggests the ‘wall of books’ addresses to a single sense, that is the sight. This proposal incorporates the notion of practicality, having the space of book reading and the space of book storing integrated/ adjacent to each other, while avoiding its physical presence. It explores the ocular aspect of the library and its physical boundaries. The notion of practicality arises, for it is inconvenient to completely detach these two spaces. By removing the physicality of the book as an object from the eye-level the design seeks to enhance the reading experience of the user.
