Invent the word
The proposal for the new library of Vic is located in a place with a historical memory of high impact not only at the local but also state level, while the site is located at a privileged point, being the point of connection Between the old city and the area of the former expansion, once crosses the Mèder River.
The building is considered as an element completely open to the city, an open book that respects the city-planning alignments but that is open in the corner, in such a way that it is established as an entry point from the old part of the city to the new, to the culture, the integration, the knowledge and the innovation; while creating a new urban space for the citizen, not only at the physical level, but also at the level of memory.
The building as a whole is a permanent response to the events that took place on May 29, 1991, creating an urban emptiness that invites reflection, a gap that rotates and surrounds the building, showing that any difference and intolerance can be Fight with culture, open the doors to knowledge, knowledge and respect among all.
