N is for Netherlands’ Delft University of Technology Library

letter nWe’re in the Netherlands today at the Delft University of Technology Library. Also known as the TU Delft Library, this unique building was constructed in 1997 and was designed by the Delft Mecanoo architecture firm.

And this library really utilizes nature. The building rises out of the ground so that the roof is covered in grass, which provides natural insulation for the library. According to Wikipedia, TU Delft, originally established in 1842, is the largest and oldest Dutch public technical university in the Netherlands.
