The Free Public Library: This project questions how the free public library can accommodate the future needs of the diverse local community in Jamaica, New York. Public libraries are seeing a rapid expansion of their activity program—the library is no longer a quiet place for reading, but also a place for community gathering, performances, and more. Therefore, building performance is critical to provide equitable and comfortable spaces for all visitors to participate. The design proposal addresses these needs through a multi-component system that has both aural and olfactory properties. Thus, the sensory system that moves fluidly through the building creates a diverse sensory landscape within the library that can be enjoyed by people with a range of sensory abilities.
