At first glance, this building by Chris Prechteck could easily pass off as an art museum or a music hall. However, this beautiful piece of architecture is actually a library.

Designed for the National Library of Austria, this impressive piece of work from Chris Prechteck is stunning. Its use of curves gives it an aerodynamic feel and its snowflake-like exterior covering the windows gives it a winter aesthetic. The library also includes creative studios, a restaurant and shops for visitors to enjoy. Stats for Spiralling Architecture Trending: Older & Chilly
