//three stratified landscapes we consider the construction of the city as an accumulation of actions and overlaped identitites. We propose the understanding of the place as an accumulation of stratus and historic layers, which mix, overlap and compatibilize within each other. The presence of the parc and "La Ciudadela" on the northeast side of the new library states a collection of archeological finds and stratus from the end of XVIII century.  A contemporary interpretation of the finds in the site stablish an order of overlaping hibrid constructive typologies which have survived to changing uses and periods suggesting and open reapprochement to the project avoiding innecesary especifications. Thus we propose the construction of a cultural infraestructure with a stratified purpose of possible spaces that allow its flexible utilization and variability depending on the evolution  of the new approchements to information and lecture.
