travel world architecture libraries

It is only recently that I have noticed that libraries are beginning to show some cutting-edge architecture.
Yes, they have been major works in the past, but they tended to follow classic lines.

I learned something from visiting each one of these projects... some were exceptional architecture...
others taught me that fame does not always mean quality architecture...
