Designed by STL Architects, the new Daegu Gosan Public Library focuses on the evolution of the role of the library in regard to the new ways we now learn and teach. With extensive amounts of information, that could historically only be accessed in and from a library, being readily available to nearly anyone, this library will be a place where people come to live and vast knowledge resources are more than stereo-typical encyclopedias. Instead of libraries being generically thought of as a dusty place where books come to age and be seldom used, this library will be a place where social interaction is the essence of existence.

With a prototype designed for mid, mass and premium markets, the Indore School educational experience will never differ, only the materials used to build each school.

As a finalist for the Torres De Cotillas Competition, STL Architects shared with us their proposal for the new Auditorium and Arts Center within the future office park. The design is projected to become the key element of connection between the new urban space and the consolidated old town grid. The new building will become a symbolic reference of public activity that will be established around the future office park of Torres de Cotillas, Spain.
