Chungnam Municipal Library Competition

As an extension of western mountainous hills, three land forms – [Green Podium] – are introduced to the site to celebrate new cultural facilities while creating landscape infrastructure to organize open space system and to provide with diverse level of programs.
The courtyard of library draws its distinctive presence at the center of circular reading room with its seasonal beauty of maple tree. This will grow along with accumulation of books and will be added up upon expansion of stack room. Over time, the library and the courtyard will grow together as it matures with people in Chungnam.
