Dragon Court Village

Aichi • Japan

This project is a rental row house comprised of nine units that is constructed in a residential suburb. The project demanded two parking spaces for each unit, creating a condition in which half of the entire site is covered by parking areas and driveways. We tried to create a low density residence that opens to the surrounding area and environment by creating shared margins between the neighboring units.

Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library | Via

Yale University’s Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library is the largest building in the world dedicated to the containment and preservation of rare books, manuscripts, and documents. Completed in 1963 and situated on Yale University’s campus, in New Haven, Connecticut, the library has room for approximately 780,000 volumes. Currently, it holds about 500,000 volumes and several million manuscripts including the original Gutenberg Bible and the mysterious Voynich manuscript, among several others.

Before the construction of the library, rare and valuable books of the Library of Yale College were placed on special shelving at the College Library, now known as Dwight Hall. Later in 1930, when the Sterling Memorial Library was being built, the university created a dedicated reading room for its rare books. As the collection grew, Sterling’s reading room became too small and unsuitable for preservation of the delicate manuscripts, and the need for a larger library was felt.
