Raval Library (2008)

Self-initiated project for a library in the dense urban context of the old Barcelona quarter of Raval, where it is facing a square and diverse cultural institutions. 

These placement aspects combined with the climatic conditions inform the form, envelope, material and spatial organisation of the building which distinctively separates itself from the neighbouring fabric, but remains related by the external spaces created and the fluidity and flow of people passing between open market spaces, public squares and cultural institutions.

The project was exhibited in the Utzon Center, Aalborg (2008).
