Bookworms can never get enough of books or places to read. A person who reads is always waiting to pounce on an opportunity to read, to pull out a book from their bag and grab the next seat they get to spend some time with their book, to barter them, to buy them – it’s a vicious cycle.
That said, the world is always more than welcoming to newer and bigger libraries where they can spend more time, get their hands on more books and basically hone their wisdom.
MVRDV – a Netherlands-based architecture and urban design practice – has crafted a massive library for readers, in collaboration with Tianjin Urban Planning and Design Institute (TUPDI).
Together, the two have beautifully used 34,000 square metres to make a library that can hold more than 1.2 million books.
It’s a five-storey building located in the Binhai Cultural District In Tianjin.
It’s now being called as ‘The Eye of Binhai’.
Completed in less than 3 years, the library hosts a reading area, a lounge, meeting places, audio room, computer room etc.
This is not the first time that MVRDV has crafted an architectural marvel for the world. Prior to this library, they’ve created a giant scaffold staircase Rotterdam city centre.
..and another beautiful market hall!
