  • Prague WAS one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Now it will be known as the one with the giant ant hill library. Chris Grippo

  • Please excuse, but this design seems a bit distorted and uncomfortable. Speaking as a traditionalist, I feel it does not represent its mission.

  • Now that's what I call public service: amateur filmmakers in Prague won't have to rely on dodgy budget special effects when filming their sci-fi Blob movies, they can simply film their local library exterior! Holy cr*p! What were the architects smoking when they came up with this, and where can I get some?

  • A library shouldn't be just a place to get books. I'm a firm believer in creating an odd and beautiful world, and this library is perfect for that. People will not only enjoy the books inside but the building itself. For my drafting ISU I'm designing a library and want it to be different from anything ever seen, but thanks to this library that goal will be more difficult than before. I wish this library was going into Toronto because I would go there every week.

  • Congratulations!!!! It is a wonderful idea. It is a new concept, really a modern concept. In Mexico we have a new concept of library, it is call Biblioteca Vasconcelos. Now my wife Maribel and me will visit Praga on 2, 3 & 4 may 2008. We hope to visit your wonderful City, Praga. See you .....

  • I admit this building hurt my eyes at first sight, but I definitely now find it original and modern. it will really show worlwide that czech republic has now entered the 21st century, and that prague won't only rely on its old buildings to attract people.
