Wisdom Builds her House: The Architecture and History of Libraries
Pinakothek der Moderne | Munique
Até 16.10

Libraries are repositories of knowledge. They belong to the oldest types of building as places to store stone tablets, papyrus rolls or thoughts in book-form. The world's major architects have often taken up this challenge - that is why libraries play such an outstanding role in the history of architecture. This exhibition concentrates on modernist structures, but also provides an insight into the incredibly multifaceted history of libraries, be they ideal, private, national, lost, painted or fictional.
