Rather than access to books and computers, this ‘hive of learning’ provides an underserved community with a unique collection of spaces that can be ‘checked out’ free online for 24/7 meeting, training, and creating. Located on a busy commercial street, design embraces cost effective materials with animated and colorful gestures presenting the ‘building as billboard’ with a welcoming presence.
