Extraordinary Libraries brought to us by Emily Temple of Flavorwire


As you might be aware, we have a thing for libraries — both the wealth of knowledge they contain and their architecture. We’ve shown you many beautiful libraries and some very cool libraries converted from unused spaces, but now we thought we’d take a look at the more bizarre-looking buildings of the bunch.
