Circular Walking Bookshelf

現在新蓋的圖書館都很注重空間的設計,如果再結合一些巧思或創意,更能讓人留下深刻的印象。David Garcia Studio 的Archive 系列作品就很適合在圖書館中展示,他們的網頁上有較詳細的介紹。

比較有趣的是 Archive II ,也就是那個輪狀的書架(circular library),它能夠讓使用者站在裡頭,如果空間夠大的話,還真可以邊看書邊走路呢! 不過這得需要有足夠的空間才有辦法這麼做,要不然就只能坐在上頭。目前美國 University of Roskilde Main Library 就有這麼一座。

我想能不能走動不是重點,重要的是它能夠吸引人,以及它所要傳達的理念:

The Archive Series are investigations on space and books. Its departure point is density and micro spaces, and a series of traditional relationships that humans have to books. Private collections have existed for centuries, but when this is added to nomadic behaviour, curious contradictions arise; this is the area studied by Archive II. How can an individual travel with it’s own library, given that books are so heavy? This is something we can all relate to when moving house. Archive II is a nomadic library, a transport system and an intimate space. Inspired by ancient travelling libraries from the Far East, which visited courts and cities, Archive II transforms this into a personal space, where walking and reading coexist as refuge and transport.
