The Decentralized Library of Gutenberg

Various services provided by tech companies have changed our lives rapidly. However, criticism steadily raises as these companies accelerate social problems such as polarization and gentrification. This project seeks to find a new solution to this problem through cooperation between tech companies and NGOs. This project targets a region in Austin, Texas, where regional imbalances and gentrification are emerging as social issues. It proposes a new typology that combines the data center and the public library. To prevent triggering more gentrification, a low-income site that has not been targeted by recent developments was selected for the project. The problematic condition of a railroad penetrating the site is explored as a beneficial component for the project’s sustainability goals.
