National Library in Quito, a fusion of modern and classic architecture

Looking at the National Library book collection in Quito, you realise that the local population doesn't read that much. The architecture of the building and the gardens are however extraordinary.

The first two floors of the historical building were preserved and were covered with a metal glass triangle ceiling. A fusion of modern art with a classic arched building. The staircases take it a step further in combining different architectural styles.

Als je naar de boekencollectie van de Nationale Bibliotheek van Quito kijkt, besef je dat de lokale bevolking niet veel boeken leest. De architectuur van het gebouw en de tuinen zijn echter buitengewoon. 

De eerste twee verdiepingen van het historische gebouw zijn goed bewaard en werden afgewerkt met een metalen glazen piramide. Een fusie tussen moderne kunst en klassiek geboogwelfde gangen. De trappenhal drijft de mix van stijlen nog een stukje verder.

  2. Wow, this is a very impressive and beautiful library. Such unique design! But you are right, I don't see even one book. Perhaps they don't need to read, because they are so good at designing and building!
