Public Library of A.& M. Miskiniai in Utena, Lithuania by 4PLIUS architects

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

Article source: 4PLIUS architects

The idea behind this project was simple and symbolic at the same time: books, the essence of knowledge, communication and cultural tradition. As the function of a public library requires, it is open to everyone – and that is why the shape of a transparent cube, a shining body at night has been chosen. As if books follow the precept of the first Lithuanian book inviting “take me and read me”…

Jose Vasconcelos Public Library in Mexico City, Mexico by Pascal Arquitectos

Article source: Pascal Arquitectos

This would be like a mausoleum, a masterpiece of our last president who in a patron’s act wanted to be remembered and transcend through its materiality.His intentions were to mimic what was done with the construction of the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao; to trigger the real estate recovery of the zone by creating added value to de adjacent land.
