OMA — Jussieu Libraries Wood Model (1992)

Model iterations experimenting with different materials such as tooth picks and thicker paper.
Model iterations experimenting with more different designed levels and putting access ways through different levels.
Original design and model of OMA’s Jussieu Libraries Wood Model (1992).

I have chosen OMA as my architect and the technique of slabs and columns and spatial loops. OMA uses different techniques to create his designs. Instead of stacking levels on each other symmetrically laid out, floors are connected to each other to link an access way to access different levels. This creates a single trajectory which builds up the building. Similarly to my design, I have used ramps to create a path way to access different floors. As they all link to each other it also shows a single trajectory. Through the linking of the levels it brings together a network of people to interact and to communicate. The planes of the levels that make up the building almost make up a city inside the building as you go floor to floor. The interior presents a more identical version of the world as it has cafes, plazas and parks. Moreover, in my design the same idea has been implemented as each level has a different interior use. For example, tables that you can study, lecture room and a meeting room. Thus, OMA is unique style of architecture connects the world in an interior of a library linking and allowing the public to have a network together.
