공원을 따라 반호를 그리는 도서관의 수려한 곡선은 내외부가 밀착된 건축환경에서 더 빛을 발휘합니다. 켄조쿠마 & 어소시에이터의 작업은 지역문화 활성화를 목적으로 도시와 건축, 자연과 사람을 연결하는 작업을 시작합니다. 곡선을 따라 흐르는 나무마감 또한 따뜻한 건축환경을 전달합니다.
Kengo Kuma and Associates has collaborated with Mad Arkitekter on the design of a library that will curve around existing trees in a small urban park in Skien, Norway.
Named Ibsen Library, the building will become a cultural hub to exhibit the literature of Henrik Ibsen – a 19th-century playwright who was born in the Norwegian city.
Kengo Kuma and Associates and Mad Arkitekter's design, developed with Buro Happold Engineering, was the winning entry of a recent competition.
It will be built on a small park in central Skien alongside the Ibsenhuset –the city's cultural centre and concert hall that is also named after the playwright.
The library's design is intended to preserve and celebrate its parkland setting while maximising its potential as a public space.
The building's curved form will be formed around the existing trees, while a new outdoor amphitheatre and multiple access points will help to connect the building with the park.
