Public Library Architecture

I’m no architect, but…

Surely some metropolis somewhere has got one of these?

I’ve done a bit of Googling to see if anything exists but, thus far, haven’t come up with anything, bar this…

Which is nice. (Though, I’m not sure it actually exists. It may just be a CGI.)

Then there’s this…

Which is pretty cool.

I’ve seen a few ‘book’ fascias like this one…

And then there’s this interesting building wrap round a library’s public car park…

But so far, I haven’t found any libraries designed to look like a stack of books on a shelf.

This is the original, with the books laying horizontally…

But I prefer the vertical version with the angled bookends. Seems more of an architectural feat.

The space could also be used for exhibitions and conferences. Obviously, it would have an über trendy café and a work/play space for kids.

Anyone know any Dubai zillionaires who fancy investing?
