Library 4100

Best Project of Public Building or Facility

About the project
The library’s building is a modern interpretation of medieval Persian and Islamic architecture. The classical Islamic design is manifested through the arches made of reinforced concrete and the wall ornaments. At the same time, the building utilizes a multitude of up-to-date technology, innovative construction and finishing materials.

The library features glazed facades contoured by walls made up of columns. This solution ensures protection of the building from direct sunlight and helps to maintain the environment inside.

The project combines outdoor and indoor spaces, which form a single whole and secure a lot of light and air.
