Stuttgart Debuts New Inspirational Library, A Knowledge Cube for Readers

Stadtbibliothek Stuttgart is a library like none other, German to a "T" in design, this book haven rivals many museums in sheer creative design and concept.  Designed by Eun Young, this architectural masterpiece, takes on the form of a giant Rubik's cube, glowing in an evening kaleidoscope of LED hues.



Inside, the minimalist interior contrast with the busy glowing cubes of the exterior.  A spectacular great white hall with small window niches greet guest before they enter the main atrium laid out with asymmetrical alternating staircases connecting readers to volumes of literary masterpieces sorted throughout 5 floors of stacks. The space truly embodies the art of literature and its readers, a superb contemporary structure that lives up to the meaning of a bibliotech.
