YMKC Yorck multimodal knowledge center. 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.
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 due to the high density of
opened transports. The entries to the park will reconnect the peaceful
park and the dense street and dynamics the actually unfriendly passage.
YMKC is working like a node in the intersection of totally variety of
streams. Central, the YMKC doesn't deal with the past. A signal for one
of the biggest parks in Berlin. A signal for the visibility of
knowledge access in Berlin. YMKC is a juxtaposition of three elements.
The shell contains all the techniques, the box concentrate the
knowledge and the main space, constitution of free space and terraces,
is teeming of life. Each function has it own "microcosm". Each
microcosm is a space and a sensation.
We want a compact, dense and central library. The path between one
book and the other should be as short as possible. From the dense book
core, at each moment you can reach a reading 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 non public 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, theatres
and long time artist residences.
Passing the street, YMKC is above you, static,
dense, monolithic. Arriving park side, you are attracted by pure
material. The first sensation is this rough surface, beaten by the rain
and the wind, changing his face trough the season. 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 new spaces, sensations will surprise at any moment. YMKC is
like a rock above a valley, a precariously static equilibrium. No
"connection" to the ground, overdraw and cantilever the street and the
park entries. You can feel the tension at the crossing of box and
ground. The microcosms are anchored like birds nest.
