This work that Alberto Kalach created in 2007 seems like one of the best public buildings to have been created during this century, and the interior space is truly surprising. It seems like you’re entering a new 21st century cathedral, and the fifth or sixth levels are impressive with their great space that extends all along an internal walkway where you can see all the bookshelves suspended on a structure. The space possesses and incredible impression of grandiose and generosity, making it a fundamental stop in Mexico City. The open space between the train station and the library has a series of remarkable gardens, which is a joy to observe from within the glass building, and even more so while outside within them.
