The awe-inspiring image above is not actually real. It’s an award-winning digital rendering of the Stockholm Public Library that some have dubbed “the Wall of Knowledge.” As described in CGSociety‘s story about the image’s creation:
…we decided to create an infinite wall of books, with a concrete wave access, with this particular shape. The double hyperbola, looking like a widening rock face was originally thought up by Armel. We considered changing the image name to the ‘Mind Shaft!’
So what do you think? The library of the future?
In any case, it’s also nice to see the digital and analog worlds getting along!
