This library, known as the “Trés Grande Bibliothèque” (Very Large Library) was built in 1996 in an industrial area of Paris by the river Seine. Four towers, shaped to recall four opened books were designed to house the Bibliothèque Nationale de France collection of books and manuscripts.

More than 10 millions of books are store behind these glasses, protected from the light by wooden boards.
