    FIRST PLACE IN 20 12 A IAS/KAWNEER NAT IONAL COMPET IT ION

  • Located in Pendleton, South Carolina next to the historic ruins of a 1800s plantation home, the new library embraces its role as a repository of

    knowledge linking past, present and future. Mediascape proposes a transparent, cutting-edge media center without sacrificing the sites

    rich past and rural landscape. Through redefining interactions between history, nature, and media, the library stands as a new icon for the Pendleton

    community.

    To create this exciting programming, the new library reconfigures the existing program, currently devoted mostly to book stacks, into a

    transformative media ribbon and a day to night social hub. The upper media bar, lifted for visibility and shelter, projects towards the

    street to connect with the community, while the lower bar extends past the ruins to embrace the sites rich history and rural landscape. The media

    ribbon offers a modular, moveable system for both digital and physical media that easily adapts to future adjustments in the librarys collection. The

    ribbon also organizes the surrounding learning spaces and computer stations, shielding for privacy while maintaining fluidity.

    Since the small community of Pendleton currently lacks gathering spaces, the new library provides a vital community center into the

    evening. The outdoor mixing stair, along with upper and lower porches, provide sheltered areas for afterhours access, particularly important

    for a library currently closed most of the weekend where many residents sit in their cars just to access Wifi. The librarys new public living rooms

    recapture the spirit of the adjacent Tanglewood mansion, a once vibrant place for gathering.

    WHAT IS THE FUTURE OF BOOKS?

    if books are just a form of technology, what new forms of technology should libraries hold?

    paper mediums are becoming defunct: magazines? newspapers? maps? yellow pages? books?

    WHAT IS THE FUTURE OF THE L I BRARY?

    WHAT IS THE FUTURE OF H ISTOR ICAL PRESERVAT ION?

    in seeking to superficially recreate the historic tanglewood mansion, the existing library fails to honor the sites rich history.

    how can the new library respect and interact with the sites history in an authentic way?
