Surry Hills Library and Community Centre, Surry Hills, Sydney
"Here is an amazing, ultramodern building. It’s mostly glass, but there’s no air-conditioning—it’s totally green. The library specializes in fashion and design, and it has comfy leather couches, so it’s a good spot for reading, listening to music, or people watching." —Luke Nguyen
