There is no sound, no voice

No disturbance.

In this library of light.

Only me,

My book and my own solitude.

Stadtbibliothek Stuttgart

That was my thought while standing in the hall of this nine-storey library building. Completed in 2011, the Stadtbibliothek Stuttgart (Stuttgart City Library) rises like a clean-cut crystalline cube at the heart of the city. The interior circulation is arranged in a spiral among the reading gallery areas, designed to be flowing promenades flooded with light from the glass roof. It is not a tourist attraction but thanks to a friend who is living there, we, fortunately, found out about this amazing place.

    1. Indeed! Unlike other libraries where I am suffocated by their stiff and structured architecture, it is surprisingly pleasant here. I am glad that you like my photo and thanks for visiting, Andi ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. It is a work of a Korean architecture company ๐Ÿ™‚ I read that they designed the interior based on the Pantheon, with the light source as the center of the hall.
