Title:   Transverse Library
Location:   DTLA
Year:   2018

Description:   The transverse section is a project developed through a series of sectional studies and morphologies. Transforming the traditional core concept, the proposal turns the core from a single aggregated object to the entire building being used and perceived as a big circulation organism. Replacing the flat floor slabs, the Library is now a vertical and horizontal maze of stairs, ramps, elevators and escalators that perform not only for circulation but also as a holder of the main program, i.e. as bookshelves, sittings, desks, etc.
