One look at at Dokk1 in Århus, Denmark and you can see why it has been named the best new library of the year by the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions. The enormous waterfront library is a perfect example of the successful joining of design and functionality. The low energy building has LED lighting throughout, solar panels, and is even cooled by sea water. Best of all, it has a futuristic, robotic parking garage underneath.
