We found our main concepts for the design proposal of the new Library in Guadalajara in the description of the library’s vision for its new building; “To be the most important public library and information service institution in Mexico and to propitiate the integral development of all the socio-economic groups in Jalisco through the provision of an efficient, high quality library and information services that are effective and permanently accessible and that correspond to the changes and necessities of the time”. This statement inspired us to develop two essential design concepts: the library Context [its social and cultural function] and the library Content [its knowledge-based innovative and communicative system].
