Papyrus had been the most common writing support and raw material for books, since 3.000 b.c for more than 2.000 years, before the paper took over . The English word paper originally came from the Latin word "Papyrus" (latin papýrus and greek pàpyros). Very similar words like papier, used in French, Dutch, German, Polish languages or papel for Spanish and Portuguese, papir in bohemian and papirije in Slavic, are terms used to indicate writing paper. As a consequence of the machine language and informatics based on the binary code born during the last century, the book began to lose its thousands-year-old material characteristic and evolved towards the use of different supports from paper. The project aims to symbolize the connection between the past and the present of the book, through the Papyrus plant and the binary code, composed by a photovoltaic cell on a glass facade, projecting the building library to a sustainable technologic future.
