Renovating library facilities: a challenge by Viruta Lab. The firm takes home first place in the competition to update the former Las Naves library with an ephemeral installation.
Its presence can be immediately observed. This paper windmill acts like an umbrella over the installation. It is the central element, which is imaginative, sensorial and playful, visually representing this reality. As such, below it, it contains the different areas brought to life within the space.
In doing so, it generates a semi-transparent mesh that covers the entire library. Only the central bay remains free. In it, this system modifies its scale and incorporates individual hanging elements, presented at various levels, to make full use of the double height.
The project places these four helixes of the paper windmill in dialogue with the five strategic sectors to which they relate. As the involvement of each aspect is proportional, they cannot be understood individually. These elements form a whole within this coherent and emotional architectural project.
