From the San Diego Union-Tribune:
A small Tijuana library has gained a lot of attention for its design and mission.
The designers of the Modulo Prep Library in the Camino Verde area of the city received the 60th Annual Progressive Architecture Award for their work.
The library, which has a strong digital focus, is called the “House for Ideas.”
The 2,368-square-foot library is a series of sequential interior and exterior “stages,” or scenarios, that connect the amphitheater, the library and the urban plaza.
Blank outside walls deliberately offer space for graffiti artists, echoing murals on surrounding buildings, while minimal exterior openings ensure the library’s security.
