Fantastic book on one of the worlds leading comtemporary buildings. All Architectural offices should follow the lead of OMA in publishing literature on all significant contemporary architecture so the public can get an understanding about why their public buildings are the way they are.

With most pages featuring brilliant and vivid photographs printed on high quality paper, this informative work also presents timelines for the library's construction and the ideas that inspired it. Content includes criticisms and emotions that ran strong behind planning and review of the proposed city project. The reason I give it only four stars is because on pages 66 and 67, where all floors are mapped out and described in helpful detail, the font was so small (think Time New Roman size 3) this reader had to employ a powerful magnifying glass in addition to the usual reading glasses in order to decipher it. The publisher or layout team had shrunk too much diagram information down to too few pages, to an illegible degree. Thankfully that only happens on just a few pages. Most of the book is of the highest physical and readable quality.

that's really a good book, and much cheaper than it in the library. I like it!
