World’s Coolest Library

World’s Coolest Library

Located near Beijing, the stunningly beautiful library was designed by the Dutch-based firm MVRDV. Known for its futuristic, unorthodox structures around the world (such as this Tetris-like modular housing concept), MVRDV has successfully created a sleek, if not revolutionary new design for libraries. The all-white space, which has a cathedral-like quality to it, features undulating rows of books that allow visitors to walk among various shelves while browsing for any given title. The energy of the library, however, doesn’t come from the books, or the wavelike shelves, but rather the spherical eye situated in the middle of the building. – AD ARCHITECTURE

Now this would be a nice place to go visit and mozzy around for a couple of days – maybe even a week.

But you gotta wonder how much the late fees are?

  • What is not known, however, is the price of its construction, as the budget has remained undisclosed. – AD Magazine

Be warned, my son, of anything in addition to them. Of making many books there is no end, and much study wearies the body. (Ecclesiastes 12:12)

Bonus:

You probably will not find any Christians in this library as Communist China will not allow anyone to attend a University unless they denounce Jesus.

Cute, huh? Guess AD forgot to mention this little tid-bit.

Moses was educated in all the wisdom of the Egyptians and was powerful in speech and action. (Acts 7:22)

Moses chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a short time. He regarded disgrace for the sake of Christ as of greater value than the treasures of Egypt, because he was looking ahead to his reward. (Hebrews 11:25-26)

Warning:

As a suggestion it may not be best to request a copy of the United States Constitution. That old relic the courts use to enforce.

On your last day you might want to ask for a book on the millions that were slaughtered by Mao’s cultural revolution. But as I said, make sure it is your last day, as indeed, it might be your last day.
