漫遊圖書館

In the city of Stuttgart, Germany, sits a huge white cube.

        Open to the public in 2011, the Stuttgart City Library was designed by South Korean architect Eun Young Yi. The design of the nine-floor library follows a cubical theme. The whole building looks like one gigantic cube that is made up of smaller cubes. Because of its Rubik’s Cube-like shape, the Stuttgart City Library has gained worldwide attention and earned itself a national award for Library of the Year in 2013. The library is particularly appealing to view from the outside at night, with its exterior glowing with blue and white lights.

        The interior of the library may be even more splendid than the outside. Aside from the books and blue-gray benches, everything inside is kept spotless and white. This includes the walls, floors, and bookshelves. Upon entering the library, you will first see a four-story, cube- shaped room known as “the heart” of the library. Above the heart is a five-story reading space surrounded by bookshelves and staircases that stretch to the glass roof where light shines through. It may be the most photographed area throughout the entire building as the design reminds people of well-known movie scenes in Harry Potter and Inception .
