A Library By The Beach

The reading room: chocolate-colored interiors.

The Bohai Sea in China is also home to the Seashore Library, which is situated in the nation’s Nandaihe beach and is a feat of modern design, The library is the perfect embodiment of what exactly is an ideal reading space, not least for it’s perfect beachside location. The library boasts a reading space, a bar, a resting spot and other facilities, which do more than its fair share of complimenting the ocean and everything it has to offer, from noisy waves to changing skies. The reading room, for one, actually offers a panoramic view of the ocean also from an elevated point and the choice of wood for both the bookshelves and the seating space comes in a pleasant chocolate-shade; the atmospheric feeling (of the library) is certainly one of pure serenity and absolute beauty.

Capsule Review

Justin Timberlake’s Man of the Woods is a return to the classics for the American music artist but infused with his country roots (courtesy of Memphis) too. The most pleasing part of Timberlake’s fifth album is his continuing collaboration with Timbaland and the Neptunes: the result is a return of electronic sounds that has always set Timberlake very starkly apart from his initial sultry pop image as one-fifth of what used to be one of the biggest boybands in the world – NSYNC. And yet the point worth talking about the most about Man of the Woods is that country influence, partly because it shines brightly in most of the tracks: slow and hermit-like, it’s different; Timberlake definitely does justice to music dabbling in rugged rural atmospheres. Standout tracks include: Supplies, Midnight Summer Jam and Sauce.
