Stockholm Library in Sweeden, by Studio ST Architect

July 05, 2013 Architecture

Stockholm Library, located in Sweeden, designed by Studio ST Architect. When looking for intelligent structural solutions we sought to use the inherent structural logic of the library – the bookshelf. Instead of creating a building and filling it with book structures (shelves) why not use the book structures as a building structure? This programmatic structure combined with the site constraint led to the development of the overall structure: eight large cores support a three-meter high space frame. Off of this preliminary structure a dense grid of 1×2 meter steel cables is suspended. This grid extends throughout the building to support everything from the façade to the book shelves. The cores shift from their original grids to keep a six meter distance from the subway tunnel below grade.
