   programmatic organization  according to square footage and its placement on the fast-to-slow spectrum.  yellow= connector/facilitator to media/information,  purple =media/information,  grey =consumption of media/information
  Breeding the Library: Oblique Children
  the product of "genetically" crossing #2 and #5 to produce hybrid offspring. systematic iterations of how building touches ground
  Library Relationships and Programmatic Qualifications:    Oblique programmatic gradient in plan.  As one moves up through the levels of the library, activities engage more time investment.
  Circulating Up Oblique Unit: systematic iterations of travel on q-4 oblique planes with attention to the resulting speed of travel.
  Exploded Axon showing roof, program, core, structure and ground. Each quadrant is programmed uniquely to engage the oblique.

  Section showing Core housing stairs and elevators, stacks in quadrant at left and study carrels on left oblique wall. Right quadrant houses café at ground floor, auditorium above that, and study spaces at top floor. Light rail seen arriving at far right.
  Section showing circulation of people on ground, arrival of light rail.  As one moves upward through the library, one engages in activities of heavy time investment.
