Five levels of symmetrical work spaces with rising terraces on both sides form the centre piece are the heart of this image. The mere amount of empty space, coupled with clear geometric side structures, creates a composition any architecture photographer would want to capture. Aside from getting a fantastic photo here, you can also enjoy reading a book, studying or taking some quiet time in this intriguing library.

This image of the study space was taken at the Jacob-und-Wilhelm-Grimm Zentrum university library.
If you're traveling via public transportation, leave the train station and head towards Friedrichstraße. Cross the street and follow along Georgenstraße for roughly two minutes.
Then, you'll spot a big white block building on your left where you'll enter through one of the main entrances of Jacob-und-Wilhelm-Grimm Zentrum. After getting inside, put your stuff (jacket and backpack) into one of the lockers (you won't be allowed to enter the library with it).
Next, walk towards the library area and then turn left and take the stairs up to the fourth floor, which is the highest level where you can enter the reading area. Note that there is one level above but with workspace cabins (which wont be as good of a central view).
