Overview

Designed by Mexican architect Alberto Kalach, Biblioteca Vasconcelos is the largest – and perhaps most unusual – public library in Latin America. The nearby greenhouse is part of its surrounding botanical gardens. Occupying an abandoned factory, it hosts an array of native Mexican plants, divided into different sections.
