I don't know about you, but I think more innovative structures like the TU Delft Library are needed -- especially when it comes to libraries. Considering that technology may one day soon take over the printed word, it is facilities like these that will encourage people to continue appreciating analogue literature.
Designed by Mecanoo Architecten, the TU Delft Library is not only stunning to look at thanks to its intriguing cone crown that runs right into the building itself, it is also eco-friendly. With a massive green roof that doubles as a relaxing area to hang out and read, the TU Delft Library blends into its natural surroundings beautifully.
The visionary TU Delft Library is definitely one for the records and will hopefully inspire similar structures around the world.
