A Ripple

Water has the opportunity to take on a variety of volumetric shapes. As an object moves through water, it displaces its weight by forcing the surroundings to adjust proportionately. This adjustment therefore changes the size and shape which is used to form the design of this library.

To convey these volumetric masses a narrow library is constructed, 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 enclose spaces for the program.
