The José Vasconcelos Library, located in Mexico City, was called one of the most advanced constructions of the 21st century
by former Mexican president Vicente Fox. The library cost nearly $100 million to build, and was the largest infrastructure
investment for the Fox administration, with construction plans spanning 2000-2006. The library faced some stumbling blocks
during its construction that eventually led to the library being closed for 22 months from 2007 until 2008; it has since been
restored and was re-opened to the public. The open, scaffold-like shelving of the library is especially unique, as are the
sculptures on site, including one by artist Gabriel Orozco made from a painted whale skeleton.
