Preston Scott Cohen's "DaTong Library" is Under Construction

April 20, 2013

Boston-based designer and architect Preston Scott Cohen's design for the Datong Library in China is currently under construction. The 'grand architectural gesture' is a book ramp, which ties four floors of books together. Aircraft design software was used to realize a complex skin that envelopes the 'dramatically soaring tectonic form.' (via designboom)
