Qatar International Library, designed by OMA, was recently inaugurated in the Education City district in the Qatari capital, Doha.

The library offers the public a variety of top-notch facilities like 3D-printing tools and musical instruments, group study areas,  computer labs, as well as a writing center. The library also contains about 1,000,000 books, journals, and unique collections.

The library visitors started posting photos of the cultural venue on the social media, displaying the eye-catching design and the vast spaces. The images also show the open shelves, the lounges, the smart media walls, in addition to several other amenities.

Professional photographs of the library are slated to be published next week. For now, you can have a look at the amazing pictures posted by the public on Instagram.

Lendo em uma cápsula…Simplesmente fantástico o projeto da Qatar National Library(QNL)assinado pelo renomado arquiteto holandes Rem Koolhaas.Os residentes e visitantes terão acesso à partir dessa semana a mais de um milhão de livros e coleções especiais.No meio desse projeto fantástico e contemporâneo ,não poderia faltar o “Heritage Library”,projetado em destaque em um plano mais baixo,remetendo a um ambiente como os de escavações em busca de objetos antigos e arqueológicos.Livros,mapas,fotografias,manuscritos desde o ano de 1.500 ,fazem valer a proposta do país de resgatar e valorizar sua historia,cultura e herança.As crianças tambem tem espaço especial no “Children’s Library” com programações divertidas durante todo mês.O QNL fica na Cidade da Educação (Education City)espaço voltado para educação e pesquisas.Deslize o dedo na foto principal e tenha acesso as outras!Enjoy it!????
