Modern Market. 1 ha.
The building serves as a library & book market, it uses the concept of shelves and books as its main ideas. Horizontal louvres symbolize the book shelves and random placing of boxes as openings convey the idea of the book itself. Apart from aesthetic factors, the facade functioned as technical aspect for the building, which is to block direct sunlight towards the library area to reduce the dazzle for the occupants. At last, this modern building defines the spirit of Zeitgeist - the defining spirit or mood of a particular period of history as shown by the ideas and beliefs of the time.
