Library Vapor Vell Barcelona

Renovation of the urban music area

Nowadays a library is less and less just a location to study books...

next project

Nowadays a library is less and less just a location to study books which consists mainly of bookshelves, a few tables and the librarian, but rather a place of information of various types using a multitude of new media.

Due to the fact that the library Vapor Vell is specializing in music, it is necessary for its renovation to respond to the fundamental changes of media  and adapt to the way how music is consumed today. To the field of music also belong issues like video and internet which are strongly linked. The aim of the project is not only an architectonical renovation but also a way to generally find a new concept for a contemporary music library. For this reason the project strongly focuses on the multimedia technology.  Only thereupon an architectural proposal can be developed.
