Japanese designer Eun Young Yi’s proposal was chosen in 1999 from 235 opposition records whilst the arrange for the brand new central library of the Town of Stuttgart.
The making of the 80-million Euro (about $108 mil. US) Stadtbibliothek am Mailnder Platz started 3 years ago and place was taken by the opening ceremonies last month.
Yi has established a cube with two floors underground and eight above. Essentially all the making, out and both inside is white. The primary collection surfaces range an with the levels linked by open staircases. Books line the outer walls of every floor.
As an awesome nod to the proven fact that the building is just a storehouse of words, the term ‘library’ is installed in four languages on the exterior walls. On the North wall in German (the neighborhood language), West in English (lingua franca), South in Arabic (the language of historical knowledge and of Stuttgart’s sister city, Cairo) and East in Korean (Yi’s indigenous language).
Yi’s business, Yi Architects relies in Cologne and Seoul. Public projects are included by its work which range from colleges and museums to city plans and offices.
