Description

17-New-Library-Stuttgart-01-s
The new library building in the middle of the new Stuttgart 21 district – freed up by restructuring of Stuttgart Central Station from an aboveground railhead station to an underground through-station – will eliminate the lack of space in the existing Stuttgart library in the city center. In addition to 500,000 classical media, the new library will also house new media (such as Internet). Designed for special use, the contemporary building meets all the needs of a 21st century library.
