Describe a newly built public facility (such as parks, cinemas etc.) that influences your city. You should say:
where this facility is
when it was built
what people can do there
and what influence this facility has.
I’d like to talk about a gorgeous new bookstore in my city that’s something of an architectural marvel. It’s not just a calm and peaceful place to read—in fact, you can always see people taking pictures in front of its garden villa-style exterior, with moss-covered walls and plenty of old-school charm.
As for where the bookstore is, it’s located in a quiet alley off the beaten track. You might have some trouble finding it at first, but once you reach the front steps, it’s like stumbling upon a hidden gem. The bookstore was built a year ago as the “sister” store of the London Review of Books. Interestingly enough, it was reconstructed from some sort of 1920s colonial mansion, and some parts have been newly renovated while others were left intact. I guess just by its appearance, you’d think the bookstore came straight out of a novel.
Moving on to what people can do in the bookstore, there’s so much more to the place than simply books. Of course, the books themselves are top-notch and range from subjects like philosophy and history to poetry and film theory. Aside from books, there’s a cozy living room that’s always playing soft jazz, an intimate café with delicious pastries and drinks, an open area for exhibitions and book club events, and a rooftop terrace with a flower garden. As you can see, it’s pretty much a dreamy wonderland for bookworms and art lovers alike.
Above all, the bookstore serves as a symbol of knowledge and culture. In a fast-paced city where identical-looking malls and buildings are popping up all over the place, it’s definitely rare to have a space to escape the busy world and immerse yourself in culture. And, I think that’s why this bookstore has such a great influence. It’s a reminder for people to slow down, focus on the present moment, and truly appreciate learning.
