ying yang public library by evgeny markachev + julia kozlova

 

 

developed by evgeny markachev + julia kozlova, the public library proposal implents the use of the philosophical ‘yin and yang’ signas the form driver of the structure, symbolizing two different origins through interaction and complementarity. the concept obtains not only the shape of the motif, but also spatially divides the space into two opposite functional nodes that complement each other (education and communication). due to the dynamic form the edifice is visually in constant movement, designating the other zones to be harmoniously distributed in the internal areas of the building. this feature reflects the modern intensity and information interchange, dynamics of modern life.

 

the library won first place in the sustainable design category of the autodesk special prize in the archi-world academy awards for 2011-2013.

  • This is very much Danish concept architecture with the typipcal diagrams and a physical model as a sidekick. It has been done before but I still think this is working. It´s kind of cute 🙂 The interior is open and airy like we are used to today and the scale of the whole building fits well with the surroundings. Well done!

  • To much BIG architects……! I like the concept behind but it does not look original to me, maybe is the representation.
