Sunday Photo – The National Library, Pristina

Designed by the Croatian architect Andrija Mutnjaković and completed in 1982, the huge National Library of Kosovo measures around 16,500 square meters.

The architectural style is described as ‘brutalist’ with opinion divided as to whether it is spectacular or plain ugly.

It is made with zenith windows, with a total 99 domes of different sizes and is entirely covered in a metal fishing net.

On a rainy day we made do with this view from the Mother Teresa Cathedral.

What do you think of the style?
