Microlibrary -Taman Bima
The microlibrary at Taman Bima, Bandung is the first pilot. It is a small reading facility for community use. The planning process engages participation from the community.
The architectural concept is to free the ground for multiple functions, while the library is elevated at the second floor. Continuous stairs allow additional seating area.
The facade material is made by upcycling used ice cream buckets. The pattern on the facade is a coding of a message by Mayor Ridwan Kamil, "buku adalah jendela dunia".
