I actually learned about the Amin Library through the designboom website and discovered the following information about the library's layout:
Each of the colored boxes are attributed to a different function: the blue volume is for entertainment and popular books; the red containers extend out as a canopy over an open-air circular reading terrace, and holds the science and technology books; the yellow is reserved for the women's reading room; the green greets visitors with the main lobby space. the actual built structure provides only the foundation for the containers hoisted upon steel stilts.Additionally, the Amin Library even houses a small medical clinic, which is free for those living in the community! How awesome is that?!
