Oblique Section Drawing
Living Room is a library for storytelling situated in Sara D. Roosevelt Park, where the intersections of Indigenous, African American, Latinx, Asian-American, and queer communities culminate. The core purpose of the library is to share and document the under-represented and forgotten histories of the community; these include oral histories, unpublished written histories, cultural artifacts/sounds, and many more. The program revolves around the intersecting programs of general library gardens and storytelling studios, further qualified as nested spaces of learning and experience. The connection between these two programs are bridged through a third space, manifested through the porous openings pulled out from the heart of the building form to open up physically and visually to the city and the park.
