TALK VOL.15 |践享第十五期 TEN Arquitectos - New York Public Library 53rd Street


Creating humanistic and effective public space has always been a focal point of architecture. Although speculative development interests and various site limitation usually impose challenges on designers in realizing such ideal intent, intelligent design strategies never fail to ingeniously transform undesirable condition into pleasant surprises.

本次“践谈”的特别活动有幸邀请到TEN Arquitectos纽约办公室主持建筑师Andrea Steele,参观她的团队最近完成的53街纽约公共图书馆项目。与会者将置身于这个备受瞩目的公共项目当中,聆听设计者亲自讲解这座开放平台从概念孕育到实体落成过程中的精彩点滴。一个尴尬的地下空间如何转型成为开放、明朗的公共空间?一个图书馆如何担当起社区文化的交流平台?让我们怀揣这些疑问走入作品当中。

In the upcoming “APT” special event, we are honored to have architect Andrea Steele, partner of TEN Arquitectos, guiding us to tour TEN's latest project, the 53rd Street branch of the New York Public Library. The audience will have the unique opportunity to learn about how this exciting project was made possible from concept to realization. What transform a below-grade space into an urban attraction with ample sunshine?How can a library take the role as cultural platform for its community?  With all your curiosity, we look forward to having you join us and experience this wonderful project.
