推荐图书馆 Biblioteca Vasconcelos
The ideal design library is a space that can express the original material power of books in a new way. A designer is a profession that seeks creative possibilities from various sources. Therefore, in designing a library, the way of contact between people and information also needs more dimensional possibilities. The arrangement of books does not just stay on a two-dimensional plane, but rather interacts with people in a three-dimensional interspersed connection. Space has its own judgment, and will integrate and guide information based on needs and differences like Pinterest. The library can arrange books according to different design themes, and cooperate with the mobile phone's online and offline interactive recommendation function, allowing people to freely shuttle in the multi-dimensional space composed of bookshelves to meet more design possibilities.

The sunlight filters through the bookshelves at different times of the day, and the books breathe quietly. This building is like an ark that can sail in time.
