The Eddie Koiki Mabo Library of Townsville’s James Cook University located on the north-eastern coast of Queensland, Australia is the landmark and built focus of the Campus which was laid out by the prominent Queensland Architect James Birrell. He also designed the original library building which was to become his Master-work. 1966年建筑有一个“有机”计划形式和雕刻的部分和偏离形式的具体信封，让人想起了Corbusier的后期工作。 This redevelopment reinforces the importance of Birrell’s concept minimising the impact of later additions, to create modern, open, technology rich learning environments. The redevelopment has been designed in three stages. Conceptual FrameworkThe completed work is the first stage of a concept design that re-organises all 3 floors of the building: The original undercroft is opened up to create a series of open, interconnected public spaces with the introduction of a new central circulation spine at each level of the building aligning with the Masterplan axis of the campus, incorporating a new south entry to the building, and a re-organisation of its functional zones arranged along the new spine. 学生阅读和学习空间位于原始建筑的北边缘，其中揭示了架构的全部戏剧。 The new concept responds to the digital-age approach to to information access. The physical collection is relocated along the southern side of the building as a permanently accessible resource leaving more space for interactive and collaborative learning. The conceptual approach to the interior design is to reveal the original robust design of the building with powerful, off-form concrete walls, voids and striking structure, and respond to this in the design of the new interventions. The spatial arrangements, functional planning and detailed design of spaces and furniture incorporate a light and unconstrained language of curves which relate to the original structure. Program ResolutionThe integration of new “student commons” with 24 hour access, and teaching spaces dedicated to new modes of group and interactive learning were core of the brief requirements for this stage of the redevelopment, Stages 2 and 3 relate to the collection and passive learning spaces on the building’s upper levels. Integration of Allied DisciplinesThe reduced height of the original undercroft necessitated complex underfloor services and HVAC ducting. The work required detailed co-ordination of the architecture with the Building Services engineering. Structural interventions were limited but highly sensitive given the exposed nature of the off form concrete envelope and structure. Public and Cultural BenefitThe new Eddie Koiki Mabo Library re-asserts its importance at the core of the University and gives new life to a marvelous building. It provides the student body with new spaces for shared and interactive learning, reflecting modern pedagogies, supported by pervasive access to electronic data technology. 新的室内街以及邻近的南方入学和景观美化，支持校园大师的计划重新组织校园大师的原始杰斐逊意图，大学图书馆作为校园的头部和中心。 詹姆斯·库克大学镇上的Eddie Mabo图书馆是大学的里程碑建设。它最初是由突出的昆士兰建筑师詹姆斯·贝基···贝基（1966年）设计，具有原创和有机概念。该建筑建于大学大师的中心，施工在几年内上演。该建筑于1991年延长至其目前的9,500平方米。 图书馆的重建旨在将其带入21世纪，并创建了各种格式的技术丰富的学习环境，以将北昆士兰大学教育带到高等教育发展中的最前沿。 Design Innovation 重建创造了基于电子数据访问的优势和共享和交互式学习的趋势的学习和研究环境。 The redevelopment includes student “commons” which give up to 24 hour access to students to study for study and research with computer and data access as well as study booths and reading areas that support group learning and research.
