StudioHinge has designed The Forest of Knowledge – CCI Library in Mumbai, India.
The design for the new library at the Cricket Club of India was informed by research into what a library in post-Covid digital times could be.
"Conceived during the lockdown, it goes beyond books to propose the library as a house of knowledge, providing an opportunity for people to come together and learn," said StudioHinge.
On a conceptual level, the design draws from nature, in particular the notion of sitting under a tree with a book.
The design also borrows from the beautiful canopy formed by the ficus and gulmohur trees found in the adjacent street.
