Library design, Czech style

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/6654083.stm ‘Tellytubby land’ some say. I have to agree. It’s as if the architect basically wants to say ‘I woz ere’ in the ugliest way they could.

But it’s architecture, Pete. Who are you to criticise its grand genius?…

So much library design is all design and no library. The artistic genius and landmark blah de blah of the building should be the last thing anyone worries about. As long as it’s not a concrete monstrosity like Birmingham and Rotherham central libraries.
