Results | 2030 Academic Library Winners

The academic library is traditionally a place for students to do research to study and ultimately to learn. However, the digital surge had a big impact on the library’s purpose and use, which demands a new approach for future design. We need a shift from traditional libraries, creating a program based on components (i.e. books, tablets, chairs, computers etc.) to create a library designed around spaces to foster creativity, collaboration, connection and fun education, in addition to accommodating different studying styles from the most serious activities to the fun loud ones.

Contemporary architecture has started to receive more accusations of emotional coldness, and restrictive aesthetics, distanced from humans and life.

An essential solution to improve the quality of life is to reconnect architecture with emotions and feelings. Architecture is the main element of our environment.
