Photos of the New Futuristic Library in China with 1.2 Million Books

China recently opened a new futuristic library that contains a staggering 1.2 million books. If you enjoy architectural photography, Dutch photographer Ossip van Duivenbode‘s images of the library will be a feast for your eyes.

The new Tianjin Binhai Library in Tianjin, China, was designed by the Dutch architectural firm MVRDV to look like a giant eye.

The five-story, 360,000-square-foot library features shelves spanning from the floor to ceiling — many of the shelves double as stairs and seats in the beautifully designed space.

The “books” above the actual bookshelves are actually painted onto the building to look like full shelves that continue up to the ceiling (creating the floor-to-ceiling illusion).
