Imagination lives above the ground. Children have a fascinating capacity to dream and to imagine their own world, on a different level compared to reality. The library is risen up from the ground, in order to remind a tree house, a refuge. The star shape recalls the branches of a tree, from which Pinocchio is composed. The exterior wood façade of the library corresponds to the interior façade, which is in this case completely enveloped by bookshelves. The central patio brings light and nature into the library, increasing the quality of the spaces. The branches are organised by age according to their capabilities. The library seeks for a sensorial experience through materials and light. A way for children to discover the world and for adults to feed their creativity and use their imagination again.
