Flexible Library Project
The brief was to design the library for l'Ecole Supérieure d'Art et Design Le Havre Rouen within it's new campus building situated in a residential area of the city. The campus was undergoing construction ready for the school to open in September 2014. This new location would be the opportunity to change practicies in a school library becoming a more flexible tool.
From April to July 2014, a research module, composed of students and a librarian, explored the situation's issues (in a practical but also a utopian way). After visits and exchanges, and during three days of workshops, six students from the University of the Creative Arts Canterbury and three students from ESADHaR worked together to create a design proposal for the layout and organisation of the new library (using analogical tools, found furnitures and equipment) as well as conceptional ideas for the library to integrate into its new surroundings.
