China Opens World’s Coolest Library With 1.2 Million Books, And Its Interior Will Take Your Breath Away
Nobody wants to be watched while reading a book, but we are ready to make an exception if it means we can visit this new remarkable library in China. The library has an incredible structure and a vast, spherical auditorium in an environment that looks like a huge eye.
The library is located in the Binhai Cultural District of Tianjin and has five floors. It was designed by the Dutch firm MVRDV in cooperation with the urban planning institute in Tianjin.
This library is called “The Eye of Binhai” and it extends to 34,000 square meters. It has capacity of 1.2 million books. There is a reading part located on the ground floor, a lounge and offices in the middle section and meeting rooms and computer/audio room upstairs.
It took 3 years to complete the entire construction.
Take a look at this wonderful library!
