Incredible ‘Ocean of Books’ Library Opens in China


China recently opened a new futuristic library that contains a staggering 1.2 million books. 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).

The Tianjin Binhai Library was built in just 3 years and opened to the public on October 1st, 2017.
