New Town Library by Arata Isozaki and Andrea Maffei

The Rayograph

Japanese architect Arata Isozaki and Italian architect Andrea Maffei collaborated on the creation of the New Town Library in Maranello, Italy. The modern library is largely made up of a reading room, the broad, curving windows of which offer clear views over a decorative pool and towards the ivy-laced walls that define the perimeter of the site. A trick of the gaze makes it appear as though the structure is floating on top of the shallow water around it.

Photographs of the site and structure were taken by Alessandra Chemollo.
