Graduation project, Phase 1.

The Lit & Phil is an independent library in Newcastle. The brief asks for a major addition to an existing heritage building currently used by the Literary and Philosophical society.

The project follows the idea that "any architecture work can be placed within a cultural continuum and is the outcome of a complex cultural, social and political struggle". Thus, any architecture work, like any heritage building, or site, should be conceptualised as a process, rather than an object to be preserved. 

The following graphic narrative attempts to summarise the outcomes of the first phase of the project:
