New Baghdad library

Baghdad has designs for a new library, which is the first to be built in the city since the ’70’s.  While I’m not a fan of most modern architecture, the design of the library is interesting and quite beautiful. Its sinuous shape is meant to resemble the Arabic word for “read.” Cool.

You can read more about it and see pictures on Curbed.  Take a look.
