The Tiny Library is to be equipped with traditional reading material including modern formats like e-books, audiobooks, audiovisual books, etc. The space designed should function as a centralized think tank for the local communities with an aim to boost public interactions and community development. Participants are to consider a ordability and optimum usage of space while designing. The designed space should be augmented to hold a maximum number of books in a limited space. The structure should not exceed 400 m2 of built-up area and should also be easy to maintain by its users. With libraries being a landmark to their surroundings, the design proposal should be iconic, inviting, and should create a statement of its own on the chosen site. Energy-saving components and sustainability are to be taken into account as well. The proposed design should be able to strike a balance between humans and their natural surroundings.
We encourage the participants to develop their programs. The space designed need not be limited to the standard activities viz. reading and self-learning space, sanitation space, administration, reception, or information desk.
As an instrument of social change, the design should promote innovative activities that’ll help stimulate and accelerate learning.
