Away in Berlin

October 14, 2009

I’m off to Berlin tonight for nearly a week – and I’m super excited. But before I go pack, I thought I’d put up links to other blogs that talk about topics similar to those that I have/will talk about here. The blog links are to the left in the sidebar under “Relevant reading”. I’ll add more as I find them.

On another topic, I’ve been thinking about new libraries and how they are becoming real central players in a city’s architectural profile. Here in Copenhagen, every time I bike to school I cross the Langebro bridge and get an eyeful of the Sorte Diamant (Black Diamond):

the library and the city

This is old news, but they’ll be building a new library in Oslo sometime soon, though they say it probably won’t be finished until 2017 (!).  Here’s one drawing of it (it’s the building to the left):

the new Oslo library

I hope it glows as much in real life as it does in the picture!
