The incredible Hyundai Card Travel Library, located in Gangnam, Seoul is more than a library. This is one of the trendiest and coolest places in the city. Hyundai wanted to make a place where people could gather and enjoy their travel planning together.
If you need to choose, plan a destination, or simply love travel and meet the world cultures this library is the perfect place for you.
Take a seat and enjoy the travel!
“Libraries are not just gateways to knowledge – they are destinations where one’s imagination can take flight and travel beyond the reality of what is.”
Japanese design firm Wonderwall completed recently the Hyundai Card Travel Library. “The library is like a cavern, with wall to ceiling bookcases stocked with books, and more books. Here, there are nearly 15,000 publications on travel, architecture and photography, in addition to a complete collection of the 126-year-old National Geographic magazine, maps, and even plane schedules.” indesignlive
“Warm wood paneling abound, while the geometric patterned ceiling appears not unlike a map or an aerial image of a fertile farmland. An Escher-esque staircase ascends from the centre of the library to link the two floors, and enhancing the atmosphere of adventure are a host of travel memorabilia such as world globes and well-worn travel trunks.” indesignlive
