Library in Matosinhos

The condition for the construction of a Municipal Library in the park was to permit the public use of the surrounding green space and at the same time keep the identity of that park. We designed a library buried in the park and lightened by patios on a lower level. We access the library by a small glass volume on the surface. While some read in the lower patios under the sun, others relax on the surface over the green cover.
