A proposals for a library near Richmond Station.
“Our time demands the anti-masterpiece, things that are cobbled together. Stubby, brutish forms that know something of the world in which they are made tell the contemporary story. Works that appear hurled into uncomfortable, anxious relationships run parallel to life.” Massimiliano Gioni, Curator, New Museum, New York.
The site is a post-industrial pocket of warehouses near Richmond train station. The proposal is for a library that sits alongside the station and connects the city with the local neighbourhood. By strategically inserting a series of related spaces into the existing warehouses, the project curates the future use of the site and generates an alternative mode of urban development.
This project references contemporary collage and assemblage, finding its architectural language through an engagement with differences, collisions and uneasy junctions.
We respectfully acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Eastern Kulin Nation as traditional custodians, on whose unceded lands we work and live. We respectfully acknowledge elders – past, present and emerging. And we extend our deepest respects to all First Nations peoples. In the context of the work we do, we express gratitude for our shared connection through place, to the oldest continuing cultures on earth.
