MEDIA LIBRARY ST PAUL in Ile de la Réunion, France by Peripheriques Architects

Tuesday, September 29th, 2015

Article source: Peripheriques Architects

The new media library structures “the gateway” of Saint-Paul city. Its location choice comes as an urban answer to the need of a strong identity in the landscape scale. This building has to become a cultural landmark, through information and training, as well as a visual one through its architecture. Located between sea and mountain, the building shape is a 34m side cube. The
idea of an urban landmark is enhanced by a strong aesthetic vocabulary of the volume related to the ”book” media: façades are structured by a stack of wavy lines reminiscent of the book pages pattern. Those “pages” are solar shading systems vibrating around the construction.

Article source: Taller básico de arquitectura s.l. 

Behind the lineal road, the plateau as a balcony over the meadow is converted into a platform. This landscape appears unprecedented and unexpected: the ochre colors and cracked land are transformed into the intense green and yellow colors of the agriculture possible thanks to the river hidden by the topography. Is in this frame, long platform, the place where San Jorge University buildings inhabit.
