Metaphor of a bridge was the inspiration that shaped the building and allowed to translate the philosophical concept of a connection. A link between library’s past and present functions, a relation among local communities. Although the footprint of the building is constructed according to the visual grid lines formed by the existing urban context the second floor volumes deny this rule to emphasize the architectural idea. Aim was to promote transparency and accessibility not only visually but functionally too.
