Escape to Book Mountain

As a self-professed bibliophile... I was excited by the recent visuals fo MVRDV's Book Mountain - the coolest library I've seen since the Seattle Public Library by Koolhaas . Check out more from World Architecture News, with some description of how the project "...will feature the literal translation of 'a mountain of reading' by creating a transparent layer around the book stacking system. With a surface of 10,000 m² the library will use a glass membrane, referred to as the 'bell jar', to make a feature of the contents creating an evolving picture from the outside when books are borrowed, replaced and moved."
