One of the result of analyses we did on location was that the square a highly qualitative and quantitative value had. Not only because the square was the only open place in the districts but also because many people, tourist as well as civilians, used the square to rest and eat a baguette or meet and chat with each other. Because of this the building is situated at the top of the square where a road spits the building in two parts. The two parts are connected underneath the road at the first level, the entre level, where the entries are for the library and the expositions. A pedestrians route is connecting this level with the second level, the street level of the building and continues to the upper square, the plaza level, where the roof of the building can be entered and where you have a beautiful view of the harbour area. Because the building Is situated on a slope, all the levels are connected and can be entered from the streets or squares.

In this project I worked with two other students. Together we did the design of the building but, there were also individual tasks. For example I focused on the model making. All the drawings and work on this page are made by myself.
