Education is commonly thought of as happening only in school buildings, but this project, developed by a Chilean architect and winner of an architectural competition, is a bid to make the street a space for a community library. The plan for Artistas Street is to give back the public a leading role, by converting the street from a throughway to a place to be in and to share, where things are cared for because they are lived. An existing path and a small terrace were the starting points for reading rooms, light shafts and a café where children and adults can meet and practice urbanity.
