    Conarte is the council for culture and art in the city of Monterrey, Mexico. Conarte aims to promote and stimulate artistic expression and supports the preservation and enrichment of culture. Our mission was to create a space that gives value to the experience of reading. A design-intelligent space was created for the bookshop and library granting value to the reading experience. Our design proposal focuses on creating a space that wraps the reader in. The bookshelves attend more that just their basic function and were designed to simulate a dome that plays with the visual perspective. The stands incorporate a color gradient finish that attributes depth. The illuminated half circle found in the back wall simulates the vanishing point of the structure, creating a perfect balance between color and perspective. Read Less

Conarte es el consejo para cultura y arte en la ciudad de Monterrey, México. Tiene como objeto proporcionar y estimular las expresiones artísticas y apoya la preservación y enriquecimiento de la cultura en el estado.
 
La misión fue crear un espacio dedicado a la lectura. Se creó un entorno arquitectónicamente inteligente compuesto por una biblioteca y librería que agrega valor a la experiencia de la lectura. 
 
Nuestra propuesta se enfoca en crear un espacio que envuelva al lector. Los estantes para libros no solo atienden su función básica sino que fueron diseñados para crear un domo que juega con la perspectiva visual. Las gradas incorporan un acabado de color en gradiente que el cual atribuye a el sentido de profundidad del espacio. En la pared de fondo se encuentra un medio circulo iluminado que a su vez simula el punto de fuga de la estructura, generando profundidad al espacio en conjunto, creando un balance entre color y perspectiva.
