Varna’s new Library embodies rebirth and renewal of civic pride and

public engagement. The first of its kind, in Bulgaria’s modern history, it

seeks to responds to the needs of a dynamic and ambitious city. As such,

Библиотека Вaрнa channels the energy of its inhabitants from all direction

via its interconnected lower levels and propels activity through the heart

of the building. The reading spaces climb along the vertical spine as their

volumes reach towards the sunrise. Magnificent views of Varna’s shoreline

penetrate the building through the large opening while patio rooftops provide

panoramic views of the area. Bold yet restrained, the new structure honors

the cultural past of early modernity and sets the tone for the new. A source

of knowledge and inspiration, the library awakens the spirit. Varna. Rise.
