A Ripple

Julian Von Schulenburg

Water has the opportunity to take on a variety of volumetric shapes. As an object moves through the water, it displaces its weight by forcing the surroundings to adjust proportionately. This adjustment, therefore, changes the size and shape used to form this library's design. A narrow library is constructed to convey these volumetric masses as if an individual is standing between two waves. The ripple has been applied to both plan and section to allow the exterior walls to dilate, which encloses the program's spaces.
