From the architect. Stéphane Chalmeau shared with us his photos on a new library by French firm Tétrarc Architects .

The Fougères Biblioteque follows the contemporary approach to libraries as meeting spaces, rather than just book storage. Due to the public function of the building,it expresses itself to the city trough the facade details seen on the above photo.

The program is distributed in two levels. The building is seen as a compact mass, with excavations to bring light and green into the building, as you can see on the complete photoset below:
