This photograph may look like some kind of computer-generated artist rendering of a futuristic space, but it’s actually a high-key architectural photograph of the beautiful public library of the city of Stuttgart, Germany. Called the Stadtbibliothek Stuttgart, the library’s new building features a simple cube-like design and a minimalist white interior, and it opened its doors in 2011.

The 9-story library, designed by the Cologne, Germany-based Yi Architects, features a large foyer at the bottom (the “heart” of the building), a wide-open multi-floor reading space, and a glass ceiling that lets sunlight in during the day.

It’s a design that doubles as a gold mine for beautiful architectural photographs:
