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.
