The Vasconcelos Library by Mexican architect Alberto Kalach is an impressive building that blends nature and literature together.

The library is a giant 250 meter steel concrete and glass structure surrounded by greenery and water. The whole concept of this project was to promote the importance of open space and greenery when it comes to building publicly funded buildings. The Vasconcelos Library is an impressive architectural piece that has a wonderful modern aesthetic to it while promoting environmental awareness.
