Birmingham’s New Library

Wow, Birmingham’s new city library is pretty impressive; http://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/gallery/2013/aug/29/birmingham-library-francine-houben-pictures#/?picture=416013925&index=0

Whether you like the architecture or not, it’s great to see a new library being opened despite the economic struggles and more to the point, it must surely be in response to demand.

Personally, I think I really like it although I’d like to judge it in real life one day. To me, the interior nods towards both the British Library, London and the Black Diamond Royal Library, Copenhagen, while the outside reminds of me of beautiful Islamic mosaics.

If you get to visit it, please email and let me know your thoughts, I’d love to hear or take a look at the link below from someone who has given some detailed and interesting observations on the library after a sneak preview visit, (yes, I’m  jealous)!
