The architecture of the library is defined by two transcendental spaces.

These telescoping towers are the result of a search for the convergence of diverse properties -traditionally separated in conventional buildings - into a single architectural form.

The towers function as structure, provide daylight, contribute to the indoor quality of climate and air, organize circulation.

Energy use is nearly halved compared to conventional building.

The Library is designed to encourage users to explore and discover the varied spaces of the library, to experience a derive through a world of words and images.
