Library Chongqing, China
Completed in 2007, the new library in the city of Chongqing, a huge city in China, with nearly 30 million inhabitants and more than 3000 years of history, it was designed by Perkins Eastman, with over 50,000 square meters construction.
It was designed to become a civic and cultural icon, so this beautiful building goes beyond the notion that a library is simply a place full of books and therefore has a concert hall, space for art galleries, conference facilities, restaurant and a hotel for visitors.
The building is almost completely covered in glass, to ensure good lighting inside.
