Three regional multi-purpose libraries composed from a set of similar modules, arranged differently to suit site and context. Emphasis on passive design & solar orientation resulted in unique multi-level aesthetic, layered with locally available durable materials, extensive timber fittings from the exotic invasive prosopis (mesquite) and very particular colour utilisation. Entrances create rare, much-needed urban public space, integrated with indigenous landscaping as potential social and learning hubs for community. Well worth a visit.
