From the architect. The new mediatheque of Proville has to open onto the village and become a place of exchange and culture, a public library and a surprising and enthusiastic place inviting everyone to the pleasure of reading.

Create a contemporary architecture dealing with the environment and the existing elements. The new spaces created are offering changing atmospheres and lighting effects due to large surfaces of glass and different partitions, patios and nice places where to take time to read, views on the church tower and the trees around. Over roofs and terraces have been thought in wood which turns grey with the years.

The balance between town and nature’s reached with an environmental approach: large picture windows to take advantage of the natural supplies of heat, and respiring partitions with systematic outside thermic insulation.

I don't see how this is interesting beyond its envelope...
How is it a mediatheque beyond a couple of lounge chairs, some freestanding bookstacks and maybe a bank of free to use computers? : A typically boring library experience. Wrapperitecture.

Good one. I like the roof lines, and how they left the structure visible and the all white interior. Functional with a little style and a lot of hype. Great.

very nice.
i like the floor plan.

Hunter · September 21, 2009

The railings kill the aesthetic of the roof splitting from the ground plane. Good overall though.
