PUBLIC LIBRARY

Briosco, Italy

 

The entire project is designed as a body within the landscape, almost not wanting to disturb the design and the existing soil; the geometry of the site and the presence of the alpine hut, have been the guidance for the design and its placement within the park. The new building is designed as a towering body with the intention to be a clear reference to an Alpine peak, it is integrated in the pronounced difference in height within the park, exploiting the altitude jump. This height difference allows us to get the entrance of the library at the foot of the hill and the roof of the building at the level of the upper portion of this relief. The proj- ect is therefore an "Alpine summit" within the park.
