Mexico City’s Biblioteca Vasconcelos

Mexico City’s Biblioteca Vasconcelos, or La Biblioteca de México sede Buenavista de la Secretaría de Cultura, is located in the Buenavista area in the north of Mexico City. It was designed by Alberto Kalach and completed in 2007. It is a must-see place when you are visiting Mexico’s capital city.

The massive building is among lush gardens and covers an area of over 38,000 square meters. It is generally referred to as a “mega-library.” Both for its size and the undeniable sense of scale conveyed by the structure itself. You are free (entrance is free) to get lost in the network of balconies and paths in this open, modern public library. I love this place; here are a few photographs I took outside and inside it:
