As author Eric Baldwin notes in this post in ArchDaily, libraries have rigorous demands when it comes to their design, especially when they are located “within a radically changing landscape” like today’s coastline.

Luckily architects are taking up the challenge as each of the projects in this post demonstrates. Mr Baldwin is on target when he says that each project offers a “unique approach to coastal contexts through individual explorations into library design. Together, they show innovative methods to defining new spatial boundaries and embracing maritime design.”
Anyone interested in library design will want to take a look.
