Italian architecture studio Carlana Mezzalira Pentimalli has designed a public library that acts like "a sensitive organism" that can  continuously adapt itself to the needs of the site and the project in Bolzano, Italy. Named Brixen Public Library, the 3,013-square-metre library has angular surfaces and protruding large windows that grasp the views from its surrounding.

The new Brixen Public Library by Carlana Mezzalira Pentimalli represents a stone's throw from the Duomo, a public institution founded in 1984, which, with its legacy of over 36.000 books represents a landmark for the entire Isarco Valley. With the completion of this public library, the studio is providing the community a contemporary space for learning and sharing, a welcoming urban living room.
