The ArtDaily Library
 
We had to create, build a different library that could be capable of contain the more than ten thousand artbooks that belong to ArtDaily.

How to catalogue them? how to arrange them? and how they would be best kept?.

We had an idea, but there are times that one does not have the ability to communicate what he thinks.

We put Escher in reference and his fantastic stairs, stairs that go nowhere, stairs that take one to the limit of the possibility to take you to the impossible, an optical illusion.

It was in this way that Betty Ayala, a young and ingenious architect, perceived and interpreted our idea and made it a reality.

If an image is worth more than a thousand words, here are several ones for you to get to know what we call The ArtDaily Library.

With these pictures our readers will be able to see that these beautiful stairs take you to each of the three levels of the building, that more than a building is a carved piece of work.

The books, the more than ten thousand books, put together here, sound more like Gregorian chants that you can hear far away, very low, and then you can feel in the library what Paul Simon beautifully called "The Sounds of Silence".
