Utilising the Between:
The Dispersed Library

Tarneit West

What is the (expanded) threshold in developing suburbs?
What engages (infiltrates) present and future development?
What is today’s public (dispersed) library?

No longer is the library solely a destination for information, but a place for exchange, creativity and innovation.

Utilising the between is a proposal to interact and engage with the development of a new suburb, Tarneit West, along Melbourne’s urban growth boundary. Through a series of interventions across the suburb, the public threshold is expanded by actively breaking into, infiltrating and parasitically attaching to the suburb’s proposed and existing “public” program. Re-defining the role and form of the contemporary public library.
