Today's archidose #259

André Malraux Library in Strasbourg, France by Jean Marc Ibos Myrto Vitart, 2008.

Architect's description:

Here, everything obeys the logic of the waterway: linearity of embankments, extent of the pier, alignment of trees. Even the buildings, set in profile from one end the other, are in perfect continuity parallel to the embankments, with their silos, like prows, vertically punctuating the extremities.

  1. i can clearly see the importance of the waterway, from this view at least. if this building is placed in an industrial park it would still make a statement with its authoritative profile. but with the waterway, it is much more poetic.
