    Default The New Stuttgart City Library - Germany

    Korean architect Eun Young Yi’s proposal was selected in 1999 from 235 competition entries as the plan for the new central library of the City of Stuttgart.
    The building of the 80-million Euro (about $108 mil. US) Stadtbibliothek am Mailänder Platz began three years ago and the opening ceremonies took place last month.






    Yi has created a monolithic cube with two floors underground and nine above. Essentially all of the building, both inside and out is white. The main library floors circle an open-plan with the levels connected by open staircases. Books line the outer walls of each floor.

    Not my idea of a cozy place. I love libraries that have long aisles and nooks and quiet places away from others. This seems like a cold get out quickly kind of place.

    Wow! I love the ultra-modern achitecture. But I think it needs more benches/sofas.

    so where do you actually read the books?

    i'm guessing all those doors lead to reading rooms.

    It's a cool design, but not for a library.

    Me, too. This place is sterile and cold, not welcoming to me at all.

    Yes, it looks cool from the pictures, but I wouldn't be able to browse without feeling exposed. I like to disappear into quiet aisles and thumb through book pages in peace.
