The new Architecture Library at Delft University of Technology just opened featuring a spectacular front desk built out of recycled books. After the devastating fire in the Architecture building that took a portion of the library's reserve, the school set out to establish a new collection that would consist of the salvaged books that went unburned and a bounty of others newly purchased to replace the destroyed volumes. Opened less than a year after the engulfing inferno, the new library is a bright, cheery space of architecturally inspired elements and stacked to the brim with an endless amount of books.
