Stockholm Public Library

Erik Gunnar Asplund

Stockholm, Sweden


One of the world's most beautiful libraries, at it's heart is a vast central rotunda lined with books rising to the spectacular rippled surface of it's ceiling.


The architect has appealed beautifully to each sense in this design but perhaps the eyes are treated with the most affection. The visual quantity of the spaces, the illumination and the limitless paths the eye can travel, across graceful curved vaults and vertical fields teeming with the detail of countess book spines all contribute to an enormously rich and stimulating visual experience.
