The aim of the competition was to design 3 roof gardens for the University Library building. The idea of a project Les Jardins du Livres

(The Garden of Books) takes inspiration from the form of a book with outspread pages. The books play a role of flower beds, which grow between trees of a little forest designed on the roof gardens. Moreover, the walls of these structures, made from sheets of corten steel, not only evoke the main local industry but also resemble soft wavy lines of pages that have their origin in a library building.

Each book page has a selection of quotes from the world of literature, philosophy, art, science and politics. The quotes are laser cut in the steel sheets which are lit at night and give the effect of illumination. The garden design includes as well other steel structures like small cube-shaped sittings covered with plexiglass and also benches which flank both sides

of each garden and offer a more open area to read or study. Their thin strips of wood were also designed to recall pages of a book.
