Future Systems won the widely contested international competition to design the National Library of the Czech Republic, it is due for completion in 2011.

“The 15m-deep, single-storey basement has a state-of-the-art automated storage-and-retrieval system for 10 million books. The upper levels house an auditorium and office space, and on the top floor is a café, reading room and deck for viewing Prague landmarks”
