World Biggest Book Shop :
This 100-year-old theater has been turned into the most incredible bookshop in the world
In the distant wonderful city of Buenos Aires, there’s a bookshop that is quite unlike anything else anywhere in the world — El Ateneo Grand Splendid. The building which it can be found in was originally a theater, and it is now almost 100 years old (it opened in 1919). Now, every year it welcomes around 1 million customers through its doors.
The theater was transformed into today’s bookshop by the architect Fernando Manzone. He was able to preserve many of the theater’s original architectural elements, including the stage, the balconies, the outstanding interior decor, and even the red curtain.
