Shenzhen Library and Concert Hall together make up another of the architectural masterpieces of the city. Architect Arata Isozaki designed the buildings with a back of almost featureless black granite and a front of brilliant folded glass. It is a must see for architecture freaks. The library has four million books.

One reply on “Shenzhen Library”
Nice selection of English language DVDs with a fair few BBC titles but nothing compared to the 40 odd thousand in Guangzhou Library. Still, with internet here being so slow, this is a good alternative to torrents.
Only 100 RMB deposit (plus ID) to join, take up to 5 DVDs per day and open till 9pm.
