A digital library, literally

26 01 2012

I bow to no-one in my veneration of the neo-Gothic architecture of the Rylands, but sometimes you just need something a little more … pixellated. Which is where the National Library of Belarus comes in.

According to the MIMOA architecture site, the 23-storey glazed building has a custom LED lighting display which can be programmed to produce different light shows. I suppose the Rylands has the Armani shop next door for a little bit of lightshow spectacularism, but I wouldn’t mind one of these as well.

This is number 1 in the ‘8 Over-The-Top Libraries‘ on the Nile Guide travel blog, so do check them out. (With thanks to my book-fiend friend who forwarded the link).
