Entry Description

At the heart of a large-scale natural environment, the Donalda-Charron library aims to build upon adjacent site conditions, favouring a landscape approach through which the library’s interior is read as both a continuous and integral part of the surrounding park. Hence, ideologically, its architecture aspires to create an absolute democratization of the space, actively promoting an enhanced relation with the context. In continual osmosis with the surroundings, interior spaces extend outwards into courtyard, gardens and outdoor public facilities.
