Jalisco State Public Library
LOCATION: Guadalajara, Mexico
SIZE: 25,000 sq.m
Asymptote’s proposal for the Jalisco State Public Library in Guadalajara, Mexico is an elegant and minimal architectural volume suspended above a vibrant new entrance plaza. The building is supported by luminescent, glass-enclosed structural “trees” that also join the north and south wings, the two main components of the library. On the south side of the building, facing the main square, is the animated façade of the “solid wing” where all of the public areas are located.
CLIENT: University of Guadalajara
