Architects worldwide have responded to this developing need, balancing lively and functional interior spaces and distinctive facades, marking out these buildings as points of access to a modern world, with spaces that continue to promote the reading of books in a calm, focused environment. This volume from the Masterpieces series presents outstanding examples of revolutions in library design and renovation, an architectural challenge to strike the finest balance between functionality and aesthetics....

    Outstanding coffee-table tome detailing advances in library architecture from around the world. This book is filled with high quality photographs, floor plans, and architectural insight. I highly recommend this book to both architecture and library enthusiasts alike.

    What should you expect but a lot of pictures? This is a book on architecture after all.This book concentrated on libraries in renovation or had been renovated or still in plan. Fancy. Library is no longer a place only for reading - it must provide facilities such as internet service. And yes, tourist attraction! Imagine reading in a library built on top of a hill facing the sea. I won’t be reading.

    Granted its an Architecture book, but I really enjoyed reading this to see the different library designs from around the world. I think what this book shows is that just because it is a library it does not mean that it is a building filled with books, but instead a library can be designed in a way where books and space can be used more effectively to engage the reader. Definitely an inspiring read.
