The new Villaverde library is designed to become a catalyst, an open and inclusive building that opens to the neighborhood, allowing it to enrich its architecture and boost its social activity. The library is configured as an urban living room, which can house multiple scenarios of daily life, as well as places for study, relax, education, culture and politics. It is not only a place of study and cultural growth, but also a space where you can the needs of the neighborhood can be expressed. An inclusive place for the population, capable of strengthening the community. The ground floor is totally permeable and it is intended as an urban permeable plaza: a place that acts as an extension of the city. The boundary between the internal and external space dissolves, creating a continuous space.
