Library & Learning Centre

The new Library and Learning Centre rises as a polygonal block from the centre of the new University campus. The LCC’s design takes the form of a cube with both inclined and straight edges. The straight lines of the building’s exterior separates as they move inward, becoming curvilinear and fluid to generate a free-formed interior canyon that serves as the central public plaza of the centre. All the other facilities of the LCC are housed within a single volume that also divides, becoming two separate ribbons that wind around each other to enclose this glazed gathering space.
