The first idea began by looking at the functions as a relatively sized series of cubes. The new shapes interlock like Tetris pieces but when pulled apart create a very dynamic central space. This form suggests interaction between the programmed sections of the library and works to engage and stimulate its users who are often immersed in their individual technology. The larger space in the middle encourages interaction yet is versatile in that the variety of spaces can easily be adapted to meet future needs.

The second idea was to take the library as a giant bookcase that houses the programmed spaces in the same way a bookcase houses books. Bookcases are easy to re-organize and adjust depending on the books present and the library would be able to adapt in the same way. The library would consist of a series of multi-functional spaces that depending on the arrangement of semi-permanent wall systems would be able to create an many varying spaces that could be used for a variety of different uses.

The third idea looked at having the programmed sections of the building open up following cues from the site. Like books these programmed areas would open up to creating a void space within each opening. These spaces could then be used as multifunctional spaces varying from study rooms to open rooftop gardens.
