Photoblog: A Look Inside Three Libraries

Between semesters, I took my third trip to Europe and unexpectedly found myself inside a few libraries. As someone who initially entered university to study architecture, I’ve always had an appreciation for spatial design and colour. Below are photos of three libraries that I visited. As you’ll see, each library has its own unique atmosphere, colour scheme, and style of bookshelves. Enjoy!

    Great pics! Amsterdam’s library is amazing! I wish Quebec libraries paid more attention to ergonomics & design. I always feel claustrophobic in QC libraries, except for, perhaps, Westmount’s… :)
