MVRDV: Book Mountain


MVRDV has  just unveiled a massive mountain of books in the Netherlands that is set within a new eco housing development. The project was 10 years in the making, and it’s designed to revive the center of Spijkenisse. Book Mountain is a monument to reading contained within a soaring glass pyramid that is visible throughout the city.Natural light and ventilation maintaina comfortable climate in the summer, while energy efficient radiant floor heating keeps it cozy in the winter.
