MVRDV - Book Mountain

Book Mountain

Taking the form of a mountain of books on the town's market square, Spijkenisse’s new library is both an advertisement and an invitation for reading. Stacking the building's various functions produces its pyramidal form, which in turn is wrapped in 480 meters of bookshelves and reading spaces. The building serves as a benchmark for sustainable technologies. The adjacent Library Quarter consisting of 42 social housing units, parking and public spaces was also designed by MVRDV.
