1070. Bibliotheca Alexandrina
















Dear Chris,

"The new Bibliotheca Alexandrina was conceived as a revival
of the ancient library in the city  founded by Alexander the
Great some 2,300 years ago and lost to civilization centuries
later. Its vast circular form alongside the circular Alexandrian
harbor recalls the cyclical nature of knowledge, fluid throughout
time." (Snøhetta)

Best,
R
