While it might be a while until we're able to travel again, there are more and more new places of interest to look forward to visiting.

Chinese architecture studio MAD Architects has designed the Wormhole Library that sits on the coast in Haikou, Hainan Province in China. The sensuously curved pavilion and "holes" in the building make it appear like a wormhole.

The unique architecture and sea views make this library an Instagrammer's dream come true. It will be located along the coast of the South China Sea, offering stunning views through the various "holes".

Spanning 1,380 square-metres, the building will also have a café, a terrace bicycle parking system, public bathrooms, and shower area.

The minimalist library has all-white curved concrete walls connect the ceiling, the ground and the walls as one. This creates an intimate, cocoon-like atmosphere while you're reading.

All of the building's mechanical, electrical, and plumbing elements will be built into the concrete walls so the interior remains seamless and uncluttered.

Holes of varying sizes allow the architecture to breathe while letting natural light flood the interior. The grey spaces of the exterior corridors provide shady spots.

Curved sliding doors and retractable glass curtain walls offer unobstructed views of the sea and will retract into the walls to let the sea air circulate within the building.
