Impressive Book Mountain Reinvents Library Design
Rotterdam-based architects MVRDV have completed the ‘Book Mountain’ in Spijkenisse, the Netherlands. The library features bookshelves enclosed in a glass pyramid, with the platforms connected via wide stairs to form a continuous route of 480 meters around the mountain to its peak. There, a cafe and reading area offer panoramic views over the Dutch town.
