GARDEN OF CURATED MATERIALS
Project by: Ife Areogun
Visitors move across the site along a central axis which takes them through a series of undulating courtyards and thresholds. This axis intersects with the central library space and the two courtyards connected to it. A secondary axis along the side of the site brings visitors to the rear of the project where there is a series of sunken meditation chambers, zen gardens, and reflecting pools. Using the central axis brings visitors through the public gathering spaces while the secondary axis leads to private meditative spaces.
