ARCHmedium is pleased to announce its new architectural competition for students and young graduates: LONDON PUBLIC LIBRARY

Context 

Charles Dickens described in his stories a complex atmosphere of the Victorian London. Through these stories, the reader can recreate that effervescent London that chaotically moved around the markets and theatres. The city of London is one of the most intense and heterogeneous capitals of the world: A place where everything fits. From the dark industrial revolution to modern architecture, the city has managed to absorb the different times by accumulation and juxtaposition. Life in London has been narrated through time by a lot of English authors that, such as Dickens, described the tangible and intangible even more eloquently than a map of the city from that period.

Proposal

For this reason ARCHMedium proposes the creation of a new public library for the city of London. Located in the financial district and near the Thames River, we suggest the creation of a place where culture, history and technology interlace to generate activity in the London of the 21st century.In the financial district, on the banks of the Thames River, the new library is established as an entity of public and collective use, in a way that reflects the values of today´s society.

A jury composed by five recognized architects will vote the winning projects according to the contest criteria:
Esteve Bonell - President
Marta Peris - Young architect
Jaume Prat - Critic
Shaun Pilgrem - Local architect
Jordi Adell - Arquitect
