Root House Library

Best Design Project for Library

About the project
Root House Library is intended for a facility specializing in the study of botany, mainly in places far from civilization and hostile environments, with the aim of adapting to them and promoting the growth of vegetation through scientific techniques that promote rapid plant growth. Functioning as a fertile planting machine and at the same time studying and monitoring these different techniques and processes, the architecture of the future must be designed with construction technologies of the future. Structures cover pronounced spans to have less contact with the ground, these constructions are designed for the future with access by aerial vehicles. Double skin embraces the entire building with solar panels that cover the energy needs of the building. The roof captures every drop of rain at the right time and uses them for vegetation.
