Biblioteca de Guadalajara

Concurso Internacional

Guadalajara, Jalisco 2004


The Universidad Autónoma e Guadalajara called for the architectural design competition for the construction of the New Mexico State Library. The site is located in the new Joint Cultural University,the library is designed as the portico of the complex. Our scheme demonstrates the rationale for the proposed building and the same book as the protagonists and thematic objectives: The core of the building, which houses the body, is a showcase exhibiting books from an atrium. Reading rooms, with double-height, unite to the single level body in a transition space.


Simultaneously, the user is directly related to the book at the level at which corresponds and visually at the top level.
