The nearest main street to the competition site is Al-Mutanabbi Street which history dates back to the time of the Abbasids, where the site of the first book traders’ market was. As such we have located the library in the most prominent location of the Design Centre, the two top levels of the front complex. At the top level the North facing roof skylights provide indirect light to the reading spaces. The main facade facing the interior plaza is screened by a mashrabiya screen protecting from the morning sunlight as well as providing some privacy. The library is accessed via a big, spiral staircase from the main lobby. Baghdad Design Centre Competition by @tamayouz.award
