The recently opened Library of Birmingham in England has been heralded as the largest public cultural space in Europe and the largest public library in the United Kingdom.  

Designed by Dutch architects Mecanoo, the building’s glass facade was constructed with metal interlocking circles, inspired by Birmingham’s industrial past.  In addition, to rare books and archive collections, the library boasts an outdoor amphitheater, repertory theatre, and symphony hall.
