On the day that Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty is formally triggered, our VC Dominic Shellard is in Warsaw holding a #LoveInternational event with current and prospective Polish students.
Alongside this important event and meetings with Polish media, we’ve suggested that if he has time he takes a look at the impressive Biblioteka Uniwersytecka w Warszawie – Warsaw University Library.
This stunning building provides a positive reference point for us in our aspirations for a #FutureLibrary and ticks many of the themes that DMU students highlighted in our initial engagement exercises during the Autumn term. With a hectare of outside rooftop space for contemplation and relaxation, how’s that for a roof garden? We’ll be looking at many other examples of stunning international library architecture in the course of this project and highlighting them here for your thoughts and comment.
These two YouTube clips give you a flavour of the BUW, inside and out.
