Stuttgart Public Library: Modern and Minimalistic Monument of Literature

This new public library in Stuttgart has set up important standards in Stuttgart concerning cultural aspects and the availability of knowledge and education as a social element.

The impeccable-looking public library “Stadtbibliothek Stuttgart” is located in Stuttgart, Germany. The Library opened its doors for the public in 2011, featuring a simple cube-like design and a minimalist white interior, carefully thought through by the Korean architect Eun Yuong Yi.

The interior of the place resembles the plain, geometric and well-structured concept of the outer appearance.The terminals, just like the books and all other media are integrated into the shelves that dominate each room. The range of books and other media is tremendous: different forms of print products, data media, digital files, sheets of music, games, pictures and various collections. In addition, there are rooms for private as well as group studying and even areas to communicate with each other.

This new public library in Stuttgart has set up important standards in Stuttgart concerning cultural aspects and the availability of knowledge and education as a social element. It has become Stuttgart’s new intellectual and cultural centre, opened to people of every nation. This is also symbolised by the inscriptions on the outer walls: the word “Library” in silver letters is in English on the west wall, in German on the north, in Korean on the East and in Arabic on the south. Enjoy the amazing photos of this minimalistic and modern design!
