Architecture Friday: Marvelous Modern Libraries

    written by Nikola Lazarevic

    Libraries aren’t just musty places to store books with librarians shushing anyone who makes a peep. They’ve become much more than that and the modern library is often home to sleek architecture and the latest technology.
    Modern libraries are beautiful, boasting dramatic shapes and volumes, high ceilings, transparent walls and impressive stacks of books.
