New Library Birmingham, UK WOW!

New Library Birmingham, UK WOW!

That’s what I have to say.  This is a wonderful light filled library and when so many libraries are loosing their funding here is a City building a statement.  I love the way the light falls inside so inviting and although new, is somehow reminiscent of old, especially the play on light, it reminds me of  light shining through old Gothic church windows.

The outside view is almost wedding cake like, or is that just me.

Mecanoo designed the exterior of the building to reference the city’s jewellery quarter, adding a filigree pattern of metal rings over golden, silver and glass facades.

I want to visit.
