University of Semnan auditorium and library New Wave Architecture

University of Semnan auditorium and library – Project description from the Architect:
Semnan is the capital city of Semnan  province, where is the summer tends to be very hot and dry with average day time temperatures hovering around 37˚c.Meanwhile winters are cold and gutsy, occasionally wet.
Locating at Semnan university campus as a focal point, offers an architectonic articulation with different architectural styles of surrounding faculties in the campus. The concept has been configured on the basis of two separated but compounded architectural constructions –An auditorium and a Library-as the hub of campus .The main challenge was to create two buildings with different spatial characteristic .A calm ,encouraging  and convenient  space for academic library and on the other side,an auditorium with  conference halls and maintenance spaces seeking to be welcoming, dynamic and crowded. Hence, the project points towards an eloquent and sober architectural dialogue in an academic context.

The spatial planning responds not only to technical and functional requirements, but also seeks a unique spatial architectural identity via integrating two volumes into a comprehensive entity .In fact, perforated porches and  water pools play critical roles in natural air circulation and provide a presentable foyer for meeting academics  and students as prime audience. The project attempts to approach a monumental and memorable picture of academic library and auditorium.

The woven  and crossing hasps on the façade link volumes visually while triangular dark glasses openness illuminate spaces and illustrate authentic  play of light and shadow. These elements   provide a quiet atmosphere while diminish the sunlight radiation particularly in the hot summers .

The Auditorium complex   includes a 1000 seats auditorium, and 100, 200 seats convention halls, ,a multi-functional hall , foyer and etc. The colored saloons are surrounded via corridors and environment. The library includes reading cluster, informal sitting newspaper, multi-lingual storages   ,computer station ,reference collection hall ,offices, exquisite book area, etc. Merging white travertine stone come along with transparent elements   provide different quality and visual appearance throughout the day by capturing morning, midday and evening light.
