Libraries (5). Biblioteca España- Medellín

Biblioteca España is located in one of the informal areas of Medellín, the Colombian city that is unfortunately known for drug traficking. Giancarlo Mazzanti’s architectural project configures three volumes as black rocks; but the most interesting element is the idea to locate such a cultural venue in an area in which culture is far from being perceived as a political priority… The city of Medellín tries to improve the quality of life of its citizens through this kind of actions, adressing reality and not just an ideal image.
