Central Park is one of the most known and visited parks in the world and is located in heart of New York City, becoming one of the most characterizing features of the city pattern. It is the most visited urban park in the United States, with an estimated 37–38 million visitors annually, and one of the most filmed locations in the world.

The competition seeks for the creation of a pavilion structure in the park that would house a public library/reading studio with an aim to promote reading culture among the general public and visitors.

The proposal should aim to create a new-age library typology that would break away from the formal environment of existing libraries of the world. The spatiality of the library should be re-interpreted from boring and pragmatic to innovative, interesting and flexible typology of reading spaces and interior arrangements etc.

The participants should focus on creating an experience for the user in the library space that will stimulate the mind to stay and spend time for longer periods. The competition seeks to create a 21st century ‘library in a park’ typology that will incorporate the social factor in a library.
