There are few things writers and readers love more than libraries.I have fond memories of bicycling to and from the library when I was growing up in Ridgewood, NJ, and I also have spent plenty of quality time at events and doing research at the New York Public Library.
But feast your eyes on this amazing place in Yangzhou, China.
The image above is the entrance, which uses a black mirrored finish on the floor and distinct rounded shelving to create a stunning effect.
Here’s another shot of it.
Inside, the otherworldly effect continues with rounded pillars, shelves, and ceilings.
The first thing of thought of when I saw this was the sets of 2001: A Space Odyssey.
This may be the best reason to visit China I’ve seen so far.
