The Waalse Krook Library is an architectural crossroads of green sensibilities and thoroughly modern design aesthetics.

With a stylishly curved exterior meant to mimic the water that it sits next to, the Waalse Krook Library has a design that is futuristic and yet still organic, clean, and bright. Large windows wrap around the building on all sides and allow it to take advantage of natural light, while its roof is an expansive green roof that boosts natural diversity and helps absorb heat. Overall the building by UNStudio is a refreshing and impressive creation that is at home with it's environment and it's urban surroundings.
