Nembro's lessons

Nembro is a small municipality in the province of Bergamo, Italy. It counts roughly 11.300 residents.
Recently Studio Archea realized there a public library: the exterior walls of the new building are covered with a brise-soleil system realized with rectangular pieces of earthenware that resemble books. Light+shadow+color for an original outcome.

Nembro is not new to strong architectural practice. Last year the municipality launched a competition for a bike path along Gavarnia creek, won by DAP Studio and Paola Giaconia with a valuable project.

Small realities-big ideas are growing.
