FORM OF KNOWLEDGE
Academic Project | 2019
Design Studio Project at SCI-Arc
Instructor: Jackilin Hah Bloom
Partner: Hiral Ahir
The project focuses on the study of the relationship between architecture and the spatial expression of differential collections of knowledge (or information). The project is for a public library in downtown Atlanta, Georgia, to replace Marcel Breuer’s Central Atlanta Library and is to be conceived in relation to the current controversy surrounding the status of the existing building. The studio’s main focus is on disciplinary questions of the relationships amongst typology, function, and aesthetics. These questions will be considered as they relate to current issues of media, technology, and access.
We envision the ever changing form of knowledge, as an interdependent system of information exchange between think tank offices and the library. Considering the state of flux libraries are undergoing, our proposal aims to respond to this dynamics spatially.
