This incredible 36,000 square foot library went viral in 2017 for its spaceship-like design and floor to ceiling shelves. Not just a library, it’s a cultural district for the city with a social event space. However, the main draw for tourists is its sheer potential for amazing photographs and videos. While the design is mind blowing, many of the books in the main hall themselves are fake. The books that are useable are in the rooms behind the hall, which have a more traditional library setup. This is a space that’s more for the futuristic aesthetics than actually reading.
