Biblioteca de México, Mexico City, Mexico
The project series documents Abalos & Herreros’ entry for an open competition for the national library José Vasconcelos, Mexico city, Mexico. The firm identified this project as number 170.
“The central library is a county’s visible deposit for its culture, a legacy to the future; contemplating al [sic] periods of a culture in a holistic and integrated way crosses historic earas [sic] and puts human memory in relation to geological time, a substrate which shelters and protects human life. [The] library will establish this dialogue by anchoring in the site, the city and the country by basic gesture putting the geologic substrate, the lagoon and the volcanos which construct and nourish the earth as a relief. A lagoon perforated by seven craters composes the germlike landscape which starts the projects, giving us a first drawing which transforms the space almost into a lake of waterlilies.” (ARCH270975)
Documenting the project are conceptual drawings, competition documents, resumes, correspondence and a map.
