Ephesus is one of the most well preserved ancient cities in the world. And the library, which was partially reconstructed in the ’70’s, is situated at the bottom of a long, what must have been at the time, roadway. It’s interesting to know that almost 2,000 years ago that the locals considered a library to be important enough to feature in their design plans. I wish today’s architecture was more artistic, with columns and sculpture and, well, just more artful. I guess it’s just not practical in today’s world of pragmatism. Here’s to more art in our modern world!
