Building- Public Library in Usera
Location- Madrid, Spain
Completion- 2003
Architect- Abalos and Herreros

AE Interests- Tall slit windows, arranged in an apparently random fashion, allow in natural light. The interior walls are covered in abstracted text in different colors. Structure is confined to the core and perimeter to leave a largely column-free interior.
