— Wade Davis’ Library

Wade Davis – Canadian anthropologist, ethnobotanist, author and photographer whose work has focused on worldwide indigenous cultures – has built this unique circular overhead library.

Wade sought a cave-like atmosphere to disappear into his work and nothing around to bother him thus avoiding the feeling of congestion.

 

The library is built like sphere above its workspace, similar to the rotunda of the oracle’s temple at Delphi, filled with the books he uses the most.

 

The natural source of light that comes from the top allows to keep a natural source of light, avoiding large windows opening onto a residential neighborhood.
