COMPETITION WINNING PROJECT, REALIZED Nantes, France, 1998
City of Nantes
The three levels of the library are open space. A glass facade limits the lecture rooms, opposite to the university of economics sciences. Orientated to the south the glass façade is protected to the sun by a giant louvres in wood. It plays with a row of lime trees and gives a shadowed gallery in front of the facade. This offers an intimate view for people who study inside the library.
