New Jalisco Library

Boeing 727/737 fuselages are assembled parallel to one another to form an inclined stack. The stack is placed on the given site with the fuselages' length running East-West. By introducing shifts along the same direction, two large open areas are created within the stack. The system employs the repetition of airplane fuselages to contain and support functions with more enclosed programmatic requirements such as the book collections, the meeting rooms and the offices, while the two open areas house the main open program with lobby and reading rooms on one side and the theaters with their independent foyer on the other. The glass facade of the atrium is integrated with a transparent LED display system that broadcasts the library to the plaza surrounding it and extends its functions to the outside through the display of full color imagery and movies as well as text.
