Part 1 Project 2017

City School of Architecture | Sri Lanka
The Library of Sri Lankan Culture brings together a divided nation by using elements from traditional architecture of all ethnicities together, with a fresh look. In this way, the form is a celebration of the ways and traditions of the Sri Lankan people, in ethnic unity and harmony. The building appears as a cube floating on a moat, and its entrance murals, waterways and walkways add interest to the spaces.
