The Zhongshu Bookstore in Shanghai, with it’s Infinite Library Architectural Design, is a veritable work of art in terms of architectural design. I stumbled upon this wonder on Pinterest and felt the need to share it with you guys as well.
The Zhongshu Bookstore, Infinite Library Architectural Design
As seen from the outside, no one could possibly imagine the treasures this banal red brick structure holds inside. The illusions are created through the use of carefully placed mirrors and the use of symmetry. This combined with precisely positioned book shelves, tables, chairs, lighting fixtures and other elements of furniture to give an infinite feeling to the overall design. The result is absolutely stunning. The best way to describe this place is through the use of photos taking full advantage of the illusion set up by the interior design architects. Without further ado, I give you the Zhongshu Bookstore in all its’ glory.
