The design intends to guide the user to its desired location through a series of different wall alignments, which creates a sense of belonging through the use of indigenous materials. The three action words 'organize', ' puncture', and 'silent' have influenced the design which incorporates these words through a series of conjunctive volumes and spatial organization of spaces according to their hierarchy.
The enclosed volume within the two walls opens up to the central courtyard, which is shared with the Janta darbar and allows the user to break up from the usual monotony of traversing through a single structure. This is in accordance with the nature of the villagers - as we consider their subconscious urge to know each other through the openness of heart.
By following the path of the wall, the library resonates with the Janta Darbar, which further frames the whole site into two different experiences - the experience of viewing the entire structure from an outside perspective and experiencing the whole structure through a frame that opens up to the internal courtyard.
