 “ ...  a large variety of spaces that would meet the learning and research needs of the clients of the library”. Evident from the entrance is the large number of computers necessary in a 21st century library, however, technology is softened by nature. The fresh green colour palette is punctuated with flashes of intense brights, botanical motifs emerge from glass and carpets, and the floor flows down through paddy field-like zones towards the wooden banana-lounges in Cadigal Green. Rooms from large to small, some with movable dividers wrap around the edge of the space; while in the centre, study booths with power and data connections also support group discussion.
