So much more to do here than reading books at this library. Meander past dramatic glass-walled architecture, stroll through the roof garden or stop by the ground-floor shops. Designed by architect Moshe Safdie, this library’s unique curved design and a walkable wall that leads to...More

I stopped here to spend time before my flight out, and to get some work done. There are great views from the top floor, and a beehive can be seen if you walk up to the 5th floor.

We were on a bike tour, and the guide stopped us at this beautiful building. Make sure you go during business hours, and take the elevator to the top. Then walk down the east side walkway from the roof. This is a pretty unique building.
