Microlibrary Alun-alun Kejaksan Cirebon

As part of SHAU's design for Alun Alun Kejaksan, a microlibrary and a playground are integrated into the square to fulfill educational and play functions. All made of bricks, it has a stepped platform which can be used as seating, while the rooftop is a viewing deck overlooking the square and enable people to obtain a different perspective and overview.

 

The microlibrary fulfills SHAU’s and the city’s literacy agenda to bring up reading interest in a friendly setting. Both library and playground also diffuse the purpose of the square beyond religious or national events which only happen a few times per year and opens up the functionality for a wider audience and everyday usage.
