A library and market for the local community
The intent of this project is to create a stronger sense of belonging to a smaller local community. A library will play an active role, where neighbors can meet over the area’s common history. Food, through a market hall, will also play an important role in giving the local community its own DNA.
The area of the project is Mitte. This quarter is the most central in Berlin and encompasses the city’s historical core. The project will give the chosen site a public platform, with a focus on development of knowledge and community. A library will play an active where neighbors can meet over the area’s common history. It will also be a place where locals can come to study, or simple spend their leisure time. Food will also play an important role, giving this local community its own DNA. The market will serve as the local’s new place to go shopping for fresh groceries.
The architect’s role will be to highlight the history of the area as well as to show the meeting between the program of a library and a market and how these two programs will merge to become a local cultural historical hub.
