The New Stuttgart City Library

Designed by architect Eun Young Yi, this city library looks like a complicated two color Rubik’s cube puzzle from the outside! But step in and you will be surprised at its simplicity.

The interiors sport a very open layout with books visible throughout. Some may find the whites a bit sterile, but make no mistake, books are the center of attention here. But, what really caught our attention, and we are sure it caught yours as well are – the stairs! They are so randomly placed, connecting each floor, but also connecting the whole space together. You’re not just climbing the stairs, you’re exploring the environment around you, the view of the library is completely exposed to your eyes. We bet that climbing those stairs feels so triumphant!
