Library and Learning Centre in Vienna, Zaha Hadid
"The new library and learning center rises as a polygonal block from the center of the new university campus. The design takes the form of a cube with both inclined and straight edges. the straight lines of the building’s exterior, separate as they move inward, becoming curvilinear and fluid, generating a free-formed interior canyon that serves as the central public plaza. All the other facilities of the LLC are housed within a single volume that also divides, becoming two separate ribbons that wind around each other to enclose this glazed gathering space… I am delighted to be working in Vienna as I have a close affiliation with the city. As a centre of research, the Library and Learning Centre is forum for the exchange of ideas. It is very exciting for us to be part of the University’s expansion."
