— Library and Knowledge Centre: Pécs, Hungary

A mosaic rainbow of glazed ceramic tiles lines an egg-shaped dome at the heart of a library in Pécs, Hungary.The six-storey library was designed by Hungarian architects Török és Balázs Építészeti, while the colourful tiles were arranged by ceramic artist Márta Nagy. Library floors wrap around the curved hub, which is used as a place for quiet inspiration. A series of small windows and a circular skylight puncture the curving tiled surfaces. The dome emerges through a decked terrace on the roof of building, surrounded by a top floor children’s library.
