« Part 25: When does NO equal YES? Right now Part 26 of Creative Woodworking series Part 27: I bet you've never seen a window like this.... »

Wade Davis Canadian anthropologist, ethnobotanist, author and photographer whose work has focused on worldwide indigenous cultures has built this unique library. Wade wanted to feel like in a basement with nothing around to bother him thus avoiding the feeling of congestion. The library is built like sphere above its workspace similar to the rotunda of the oracle’s temple at Delphi that he filled it with the books he uses the most. And the natural source of light then comes from the top allows to keep a natural source of light, avoiding having to install windows.

If the ladder was attached, like a library ladder, and you could roll it around while you were at the top it would be very cool.

I love it except for the ladder which just doesn’t seem to fit in.
