Old Market Library

The commercial centre of the Min Buri Market disappeared due to a fire in the late nineties. The community has diminished from a lively origo into a slum-like area. For this project to be successful it was important to involve the inhabitants actively throughout the whole process, from inception to completion. The refurbishment was a demonstration of what can be achieved by the inhabitants themselves, through own initiative, using local inexpensive materials and their own knowledge.

Die norwegische Non-Profit-Organisation TYIN Tegnestue arbeitet weltweit an der Verbesserung der Lebensverhältnisse benachteiligter Menschen durch Bau und Gestaltung – in der Regel als Gemeinschaftsprojekt von engagierten Menschen vor Ort und in diesem Fall in Zusammenarbeit mit CASE Studio Architects wurde die Bibliothek in Min Buri wieder aufgebaut.
