Public library München

The temporary Munich City Library, designed as a sequence of differently colored rooms, contrasts with the otherwise white, cool and technical architecture of the existing building. The different colors create an identification of the individual departments of the library like the children and youth area ,the family library or the gaming zone. Due to the location within the store city of the Motorama, the library becomes a highly public transit space which is open until late in the evening.
Simple materials and surfaces follow the concept of a temporary facility.
