The outside of this building is unique and makes the library incredibly easy to find but the side of the building is absolutely beautiful.

We'd been wanting to see this building ever since we saw it in pictures. We don't like modern architecture but this was something completely different - so ugly that it is actually quite cool! It looks even better in real life than in the pictures....More

I am torn between describing this as the most ugly building I have ever seen or one of the most uniquely designed, giving it it's own particular beauty
