The Spiral provides a new library model through the offering of a local landmark that responds to the unique site, delivering a range of spaces, both internal and external, and has its roots firmly within the existing Copenhagen library network.


 


The design looks at different functions that the library can offer and allows the user to find the space they want to engage with, whether inside, outside, virtual or made up as part of their dream.


 


Even though spaces are provided from open / social to intimate / private, the spaces are all connected. It means the library actually doesn’t have an ending. It’s carried through each person, who lives in the surrounding area or has visited the building, through the memories and experiences.
