Ramallah Public Library

 The project adopted an experimental approach of coding and decoding the physical context of Ramallah city to finally design a public library for the city in Palestine. By using the user's movements and the spatial urban qualities of the city as the main tools of exploring and reproducing multiple spatial and architectural typologies. The project thus becomes an example of how architecture can challenge the urbanization of our cities, and how can cultural institutions reinforce and revive the keenness for knowledge that can sometimes be restricted by technology.
