Brief About The Project: 

"Square One" is an experience that re-imagines the educational process and invokes change in the existing educational system through a progression of spaces,levels and activities that challenge societal norms and integrate surrounding societies by redefining the role of the 21st century library not as a collection of books but that of people,communities and experiences. The program houses 3 functions: an interactive digital library,a traditional library,and a learning center. Functions are housed within the exterior shell which consists of public staircases,indoor courtyards,and large plazas.
