The structure’s facade looks like a formation of colorful glowing cubes, while inside the space contrasts with a simple and minimalist style. In its white, cavernous, window-speckled hall, stairs connect floors through random pathways, allowing visitors to explore their surroundings while they search for particular books.

Built into the structure is a reading cafe and a childrens play area that even provides bins of books for kids to rummage through! The space is truly dedicated to literature and its readers, and is a fantastic contemporary construction that certainly lives up to its hype.
