Building

I also went to the Library of Birmingham. Initially I went to see the Daniel Meadows exhibition, but the building was so large and impressive that I ended up spending a lot of time there, and didn’t end up going to the City Museum. It has nine floors, multiple exhibition spaces and two roof gardens.

Pavement

I liked the decorative brickwork in the square around the library.

Plaza

Which looks even more impressive from above.

Levels

The inside is like something from Borges. On the top floor is a wood-panelled room filled with copies of Shakespeare which has been taken apart, moved and put back together every time they have built a new library.

Garden

The building has two different terrace gardens . . .

View

. . . with a fantastic view.
