Text description provided by the architects. Marsino Arquitectos designed the Central Library for the Universidad Católica del Norte in Chile. Several access points, circulations and gathering spaces result in a fluid space that fits with current educational methodologies.

The architectural container materializes the gathering in spaces to develop the social and collaborative role of contemporary libraries, distant from the old archive-like approach for libraries.

Its facade consolidates the institutional image of the University, that has been developed as a series of temporary constructions.
