Images Of The 8 Most Modern Libraries in the World

The blog Best Colleges Online has a review of the 25 Most Modern Libraries in the World, which they break out into categories: architecture, technology and innovation, digital collections. But, amazingly, they don’t include any images of the libraries they highlight for architecture. Well, I’ll do it.

A couple of notes: all of these images are from Flickr, which I use a lot for my podcast, Photo Share Podcast. I’ll give you one image for each library and a link to more images. Also, this is hard to believe, but I couldn’t find any images of the Library of Picture Books in Iwaki City of Fukushima Prefecture on Flickr. In fact, there are hardly any images on the Web at all. It’s actually pretty hard to find Creative Commons images to use for some of these libraries, that’s why I might give you a crappy photo, but there’s a link to better photos.

Which one is your favorite? Have you been to any of these?
