Coolest library has dazzling futuristic interior

One of the coolest libraries has just opened in China and it is breathtakingly beautiful. The Tianjin Binhai Library has opened up in the Binhai Cultural District of Tianjin earlier this month. It is also called  “The Eye of Benhai” because of its mirrored spherical centrepiece that appears like an eye.

The library has five storeys with a dazzling futuristic interior featuring rippling shelves of books. It has layered terraces that double as steps and seats. There are books on shelves up to the ceiling and are out of reach, but no worries as the designer has used aluminum plates instead of actual literature on the higher terraces in order to keep up with the library’s aesthetic.

The library spans over 34,000 meters (366,000 square feet) and can hold as many as 1.2 million books. There are children’s play areas, lounges, and reading rooms on the lower levels of the library, while the upper floors are mainly offices and audio, computer, and meetings rooms.

 The library is designed by the Dutch architecture firm MVRDV in partnership with Tianjin Urban Planning and Design Institute (TUPDI) and was ready after just three years of construction.  The library is a part of the city’s effort to improve the region’s cultural frastructure.
