French National Library

Some have suggested that the French National Library is a bit too modern, creating a sterile space too cold for people and unfriendly to books.
While not all would agree, the library does attempt to create a wholly modern approach to library space, focusing on computers more than books, including services from four super computers. Of course, it does have quite a few flaws as well, as the ultra modern building designed by Francois Mitterrand isn't easy to navigate and none of the services offered by the library are available without a cost.

If anything, this building is a lesson in creating modern spaces that aren't just focused on design but on function as well.
