Superimposition is the technique of layering one image or piece of information on top of another. Growing communities have the need for many superimposing functions, in different places, for different people with various stories. Using the surroundings, we have and create journeys for the community who have different needs for spaces.
Designing several spaces connected with different functions and responding to the external surroundings. A place that can meet the needs for its community and is adaptable for the future. Simple exterior with a complex and interconnected interior. Having a journey inside and out that is welcome to all the public. Moving past the ways of modernism and pushing post modernism further.
Layered and angled blocks connected with 2 cores. Similar to pages of a book, different parts of the story or building but with different information in each space. Having a journey from one side from the other.
The blocks and functions are imbedded into the site surrounded by the many layers of nature growing and linking to the building.
The areas are seen as different functions to everyone, and they adapt to people’s needs.
Bringing the growth of neoclassical architecture into post-modernist architecture with my design of a multifunctional library. Creating interactive and engaging spaces with minimal distractions or disruptions. Designed to overlay digital information and media onto physical spaces, objects, and materials.
My main ideas, concepts and designs follow alongside my architectural analysis of postmodernism and how we can continue to move past modernism by learning from historic architectural styles. Looking into and researching several precedents including libraries with similar designs and functions. Postmodernism has had a significant impact on architecture and the way it shapes the urban environment. In contrast to the more rigid and functionalist approach of modernist architecture, postmodernism embraces diversity, complexity, and a sense of playfulness.
