Is the Copenhagen library interior a pure metal construction? The columns and the side banisters look like made from one piece, maybe prefabricated?

More impressions of the Grimm-Zentrum, as you seem to like it.


The main reading room from various angles.

I also like the exterior of the Grimm-Zentrum. It has this typical Berlin neo-classical style.

The architect of the Berlin library is Max Dudler from Switzerland.
