The library is a building of glass and grass. By lifting up the grass like a sheet of paper and putting columns under it, the University district not only gains a library that is connected to the rest of the world using the most modern electronic means, but also the atmosphere of a campus. You can literally walk across the library. There are a thousand study spaces for the more than three thousand students each day. As a contrast, a large volume stabs through the landscape, a cone pinning the landscape down like a drawing pin.
Open every day, except during summer holidays. Closed on Saturday and Sunday. For the full list of opening hours, look at the website of the library.
