Biblioteca Vasconcelos

One of my favourite places in Mexico City: a library.

  • The library is spread on 38,000 square meters.
  • Had an initial planned cost of roughly 98 million US dollars.
  • Is adorned by several sculptures by Mexican artists.
  • Closed for 22 months due to irregularities and flaws in construction.

Architect:  Alberto Kalach
