Nicknamed the “megalibrary” by the Mexican press, this giant library takes up a whopping 37,997 square metres, and houses a painted skeleton of a gray whale inside the main hallway.
Outside of the library has a botanical garden that protects the building from the loud city streets, providing a buffer against the noise of city life.
Inside, over 500,000 books are displayed on glass shelves hanging from the five stories of the building.
