You must have  studied in some of the world’s most quiet libraries and have that feeling that everything except the humans reading are dead. These are libraries that were designed to be bored, that does not mean that those libraries may not have attractive sites. In our content, we are presenting some of the most beautiful libraries around the world, their structures are simply out of our imagination and sometimes, we wonder if these are really libraries. Here we go;

 

Admont Abbey Library – Admont, Austria

Admont Abbey Library – Admont, Austria

 This library is located on the Enns River in the Southeast of Austria.  Admont Abbey library was built in 1776 and designed by architect Joseph Hueber.  The beauty is breathtaking and the library is resplendent in white and gold hues and crowned with 7 cupolas. The ceiling is designed by Bartolomeo Altomonte’s frescos that is fully representing  the various phases of human knowledge. More than 70,000 of the monastery’s approximately 200,000 volumes are kept here and the Joseph Stammel’s “Four Last Things” sculptures, which bring to life depictions of death, heaven, hell and the Last Judgment is stored here too. This is the largest library of its kind.

There is even a bible that dates back to 1571 and also one of the earliest Spanish dictionaries that was issued by the Royal Spanish Academy.

 Where on earth can you find such a library? The Mediatheque Sandro Penna was designed to look like a space age building. It was completed in 2004 by architects Studio Italo Rota. It has pink glass that glows in the night and the Perugia-born poet Sandro Penna, is given a tribute through excerpts of his writings that cover the see-through panels of the façade at the entrance.

 This is the creation of Dublin architects de Blacam & Meagher. They had used this progressive technique to get the attention of everyone. The Galway-Mayo Institute Of Technology Library was not just built for aesthetical reasons alone but it is one of the most eco friendly building in the world. Thanks to science and technology.

Have you seen why we said that these libraries were not designed alone for intellectual purposes but they were designed to give us the full meaning of beauty that is accompanied with an educational structure?
