Baha Modular Library
Al Baha, Saudi Arabia
The Ministry of Education of Saudi Arabia was looking to develop a prototype of prefabricated library buildings that can be used on different campuses and can vary in size according to requirements.
The scheme has been developed as a bookshelf metaphor with individual books acting as modular components that are stacked and slotted next to one another.
The arrangement is both flexible and transportable for ease of assembly and construction.
The layout provides space for traditional library functions but also incorporates courtyards and break out areas.
