The architecture of the library is defined by two towers, 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.

the heart of the sustainable strategy of the design - 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.

The library gives form for the idea that freedom comes from knowledge. It is a public space designed for the creation of knowledge.
