A pecha kucha presentation from ‘The New Library – Design and Function’ conference held February 10-12, 2011, at Marina Congress Center, Helsinki
By 2015 Barcelona will have the biggest library in Spain. On the terraces there will be reading zones which open outdoors. Inside the building there will be multi-use areas, a space for teenagers, another for press and magazines, one for music and film, a large children’s area, and exhibition room, a cafeteria and a number of logistical spaces for storing material, among others. The spaces will be connected by escalators. Do you want to hear more about the project? Listen what the Josep Miro Gellida has to say!
