In this building, the Municipal Library and the Literary Guild coexist independently.
The vertical volume above the foyer and the sloped entrance tunnel create an urban image, the trait of the building.
The interiors are easy to read. From an intense white foyer, the children go downstairs and the adults, upstairs. The reading rooms are rectangles, as warehouses for neatly archived books.Source: Belém Lima Architects/FG+SG/ www.archdaily.com
