Having a good modern university library makes all the difference in attracting students to a school. Vienna University of Economics and Business demonstrates this point with the Zaha-Hadid-designed 'Library and Learning Center.'

This library is absolutely stunning and transformational. Libraries can sometimes be seen as a mundane institution, but this design proves otherwise. Zaha Hadid creates a futuristic monochrome design where spending all your study sessions is not such a far-fetched idea.

This building is adorned with curved lines and vast window paneling that creates an overall glossy appearance. This library might as well be a communal hang out for students attending the university. Having a good library attracts more students and forms more buzz around the university, especially because libraries are the school's driving force for studying and accessing information.
