OUR CLIENTS WISH WAS TO COMBINE A HOUSE AND A LIBRARY.


A LIBRARY CAN BE SEEN AS A DEVICE TO CONNECT THE HISTORY OF THOUGHT WITH THE PRESENT WORLD AND AS SUCH THE LIBRARY BECOMES A MACHINE, NOT UNLIKE A COMMON EXTERNAL BRAIN, CONSTANTLY COMMUNICATING WITH ITS USER.


IT IS OUR BELIEF THAT THERE ARE CERTAIN TIMELESS ELEMENTS IN ARCHITECTURE, OF WHICH THE STRONGEST ALL DEAL WITH SPACE, ITS COMPOSITION, ITS REPRESENTATION AND OUR PERCEPTION OF SPACE.
