WHODA THUNK IT? This is a library. Really. And a fascinating one at that. Worth a visit just to be there, much less check out a book or three.
MVRDV architects joined with Tianjin (China) urban planners to design the Tianjin Binhai Library.
The contoured bookshelves rise to the roof and the sea of books provides the only color to the otherwise stark white interior.
The look of the place is spellbinding. More detail and more photos here.
