Congratulations Hunterrtomi for winning the October project of the month with his patiently and meticulously created LIBRARY (DE-GTK, FINAL) project! Libraries are essential to learning and this is one where it would be easy to spend hours using all the possible information sources.
As you would expect, the library is well-organized and filled with learning materials. Enter at the yellow arrow and let’s explore a little – quietly of course. This is a great view that shows the variety of reading and research areas. The layout offers traditional long tables for individuals and pairs to work interspersed with the shelves of resources. Three additional areas in the back encourage small groups to work together.
Most public libraries have limited budgets and work hard to purchase more materials and media rather than having a fancy building. The entrance is simple, but effective. The dark gray strip of carpet is great for keeping the library clean and acts like an arrow to draw us deeper into the collection.
Go on a 360° tour!
Big windows along both side walls keep the whole library bright and cheerful. Plants, bright colors and lots of space also help create a pleasing environment.
There is an abundance of charging outlets that welcome the use of computers along with all the other available media. As society changes, so do libraries. Libraries can provide free access to information for those who want more knowledge.
Brightly colored shelves and irregular patterns keep the stacks (a library term for the shelves of books) interesting and fun to wander through.
Soft, comfortable chairs help give this area a more informal mood and allow groups to be formed as needed. Our book bags are ready to carry our borrowed treasures home.
There’s plenty of room to move the chairs around into an appropriate grouping for your needs.
Another area is devoted to round tables to gather small study groups. They help make the area appear larger and encourage sharing.
From here it’s easy to look back and see the entrance which gives a sense of size to the whole library.
Just imagine the knowledge, patience and creativity to create these inviting spaces and then fill in the thousands of details to make it all work. It’s an amazing project!
Please remember that every project creator has the option to continue developing any of their projects. When you go to a linked project it may be different than at the time the images above were created. Creativity continues, regardless of the clock!
Now it’s your turn!
