A model municipal public library in Mosina, Poland by UGO Architecture and Design

  • The starting point for polish firm UGO architecture and design’s development of an architectural concept of a model municipal public library in mosina, poland extended from studies carried out by the office for readership studies of the national library and the public opinion research centre TNS OBOP, which indicated that 56% of poles did not read a single book during 2010. thus they started to think about how to make the citizens and the authorities  of the municipality (the latter to finance the project) interested with the idea of model public libraries in spite of the country’s poor readership.  in the surveys carried out among inhabitants of various cities – which were used for planning long-term development strategies – the population rarely indicated the need to build a new library. instead, the facilities that dominated their wish lists were kindergartens, large self-service shops, or a place to engage in recreational activities such as sports halls or swimming pools. therefore, UGO decided to combine these desired programs into a single space together with the library which is the basic element of the architecture, the other functions additions.

Would More People Use the Public Library If It Had a Water Slide?
