Germany | Reading the City

Between 2013 and 2017 I have been developing a research, in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut, on the relationship between cities and libraries in Germany, expressed through drawings, interviews, texts and detailed technical specifications.

As the work progressed, we were able to better clarify the terms and purposes of this research, trying to focus on the dialogue between the city and the places where memory is kept; the relationship and the boundaries between books and digital media; the role of an urban and social center for meetings and cultural development, often associated with galleries for art, studios to make and listen to music, lounge areas  or playground areas for children.
