ATG Quirkies: A Unique Library in Yangzhou, China

This collection of photos on the Twisted Sifter website captures the incredibly futuristic Yangzhou Zhongshuge in China  designed by Li Xiang of XL Muse Architects.

According to the post, “the breathtaking entrance is defined by the arched walls of books and reflective black mirror finish on the floor, giving visitors the sense they are entering a different world.

As visitors continue inside, organic, flowing shapes and soft lighting set the mood for a literary adventure. Books are displayed in a variety of ways to tempt you and there is ample seating once you’ve found the right book. There’s also a Children’s Picture Book Pavilion for the next generation of book lovers!”
