Description


Finalist EoD April 2013.

Library for the law faculty of the university of Zurich/Switzerland designed by Santiago Calatrava. The old building from Hermann Fietz was built 1909. The exterior stayed pretty much untouched. The whole intervention is more of a giant piece of wooden furniture placed in the atrium of the existing building. The library has 5000 meters space for books and 500 working places. The oval skylight has an integrated mechanical sun shade.

Camera directed up towards the ceiling. I wish I had a person leaning out from the reiling here (to get a sense of scale) but they were all busy studying. It was so quiet that every time I pressed the shutter it sounded like a volcano...;)

Canon 10-22 mm lens, tripod. Raw conversion and post processing in CS6.

Exif: F Number: 18, Exposure Bias Value: 2.33, ExposureTime: 1/8 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 200, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 10.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 7D
