The latest, coolest library is in a concrete building on the beach in China

The latest, coolest, looking library comes to us from the white sandy beach of Nandaihe, China.

Facing the East China Sea the Seaside Library brings all the amenities of a contemporary library right to the waters edge.

Constructed by Vector Architects the library features a tiered reading room that occupies the center of the two-story library while a meditation space, activity room, and bar occupy the perimeter.

That sounds like the perfect trifecta, a beautiful place on the beach to read – meditate – drink
