OUR EXPERIENCE OF KNOWLEDGE IS IN BIG CHANGES. FROM A PURE STORAGE FUNCTION, THE LIBRARY BECAME A TOOL OF KNOWLEDGE AND COMMUNICATION. THE LIBRARY OF TOMORROW WILL BE A KNOWLEDGE FILTER AND A CREATION PLACE. LIBRARIES AND LIBRARIANS WILL BE A WARRANTY OF HIGH QUALITY INFORMATION.
THE YORCKBRIDGE ARE WORKING LIKE A FENCE, BETWEEN SCHÖNEBERG AND KREUZBERG. ACTUALLY THERE ARE JUST A FEW PEOPLES CROSSING THE WHOLE STREET. THE NORTH SIDE IS THE MOST USED DU TO THE HIGH DENSITY OF OPENT TRANSPORTS. THE ENTRIES TO THE PARK WILL RECONNECT THE PEACEFUL PARK AND THE DENSE STREET AND DYNAMISE THE ACTUALLY UNFRIENDLY PASSAGE.



YMKC IS WORKING LIKE A NODE IN THE INTERSECTION OF TOTALLY VARIETY OF STREAMS. CENTRAL, THE YMKC DON‘T DEAL WITH THE
PAST. A SIGNAL FOR ONE OF THE BIGGEST PARK IN BERLIN. A SIGNAL FOR THE VISIBILITY OF KNOWLEDGE ACCESS IN BERLIN.

YMKC IS A JUXTAPOSITION OF THREE ELEMENTS. THE SHELL CONTAINS ALL THE TECHNICS, THE BOX CONCENTRATE THE KNOWLEDGE AND THE MAIN SPACE, CONSTITUTION OF FREE SPACE AND TERRACES, IS TEEMING OF LIFE. EACH FUNCTION HAS HIS OWN “ MICROCOSM”. EACH MICROCOSM IS A SPACE AND A SENSATION.

WE WANT A COMPACT, DENSE AND CENTRAL LIBRARY. THE PATH BETWEEN (ONE) BOOKS (AND THE OTHER) SHOULD BE AS SHORT AS POSSIBLE. FROM THE DENSE BOOK CORE, AT EACH MOMENT YOU CAN REACH A READINGS TERRACE. EACH TERRACE PROPOSES A DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE OF READING. THE AVAILABILITY OF BOOKS HAS A DEGRADATION INTENSITY. FROM THE MAGAZINE SHELVES IN THE CAFE TO THE PUBLIC CLOSED STORAGE, YOU GO THROUGH A CHILDREN LIBRARY, THE MAIN
LIBRARY, READING AREAS, A MEDIA LIBRARY, WORKING AREAS, A RESTRICTED ACCESS STORAGE AREA. CREATION WILL TAKE PLACE IN WORKSHOPS, THEATRE, LONG TERM ARTISTS RESIDENCES.


PASSING IN THE STREET, YMKC IS OVER YOU, STATIC, DENSE, MONOLYTHIC. COMMING FROM THE PARK, YOU‘RE ATTRACTED BY THE PURE MATERIAL SIGNAL. THE FIRST SENSATION IS THIS ROUGHT SURFACE, BEATED BY THE RAIN AND THE WIND, CHANGING HIS FACE THROUGH THE SEASONS. FROM THE INCOME, THE INNER SPACE IS MINIMALIST , AND THE LIGHT BRING A SENSATION OF CATHEDRAL. GOING UP YOU DISCOVER THE LIVE ON EACH PLACE, THE BUILDING LIKE AN ANTHILL. NAVIGATING THROUGH THE AMBIANCES TO TASTE EACH SPACE QUALITIES, DISCOVERING KNEW SPACES, SENSATIONS, WE WANT SURPRISE AT ANY MOMENT.

YMKC IS LIKE A ROCK OVER A VALLEY, A PRECARIOUSLY STATIK EQUILIBRIUM, NO “CONNECTION” TO THE GROUND.
OVERSPANNING OVER THE STREET AND CANTILEVER OVER THE PARK ENTRIES. YOU CAN FEEL THE TENSION AT THE CROSSING OF BOX AND GROUND. THE MICROCOSMES ARE ANCHORED LIKE BIRDS NESTS.
