Tomas Bata University, City of Zlin
This scheme is a signature project for Eva, Zlin being her birthplace. The Library, formerly situated in old warehouses, formed part of a new development plan with a multi-purpose auditorium financed by the City of Zlin.
The Library consists of two distinct volumes with 500 study spaces for students, and offices for the Rector and University administration, these being connected by a spacious top-lit atrium, used as a relaxation area and meeting point, The building was built on a relatively low budget and uses a passive energy system, clad in ceramic tiles complemented by efficient shading.
