The San Marcos Library is a project that investigates the designer’s role in reimaging and transforming public spaces for the good of communities. By developing an understanding of space and place, designers are challenged to come up with critical concepts and design strategies that reside at the intersection of creative placemaking, human-centered design, and human geography. This study objective is to gain a deeper knowledge of user experience at the San Marcos public library. Exploring people’s connection with a place and its characteristics will open an opportunity to make that place more inviting and meaningful for library users and the community. Through each phase of research, observation, and face-to-face conversations, I’m trying to identify their uses of space, reading habits, the livability and culture of the community.
In order to communicate my observation to the readers, I use mapping to document the demographic (age, gender, background), the space (sound map), and the users' relationships with their environment.
