Vaughan Public Library, a library located in the suburbs north of Toronto in Canada, is the beneficiary of a brand new aluminum and glass structure created by Canadian architecture firm ZAS.

What makes the design of the Vaughan Public Library so unique is the fact that it features a rather whimsical design that is intended to stand out with the otherwise unspectacular aesthetics of the Vaughan area. This design, whose most noteworthy elements are the sloping roof and unconventional roof shape, is inspired by a nearby theme park and its famous rollercoasters. The building also features compact glazed windows that maximize natural light but keep glare down.

This library building's design is truly innovative because of unconventional aesthetics that are inspired by a nearby landmark.
