The prompt for this design was to create a space for literacy within the Denver neighborhood of the Highlands. Instead of creating a traditional library this space creates the opportunity for “Literacy of the Self” which is defined as meditation and self-reflection to encourage focus. The design intention is to create a space that detaches from the sensory inputs of the city, providing a moment for individuals to find isolation of thought, preparing them to confront the flow of data upon reintroduction to the city.
