La Staatsbibliothek is in of límite Oriental of the Kulturforum, is a complex of buildings that is formed by the Scharoun Phiharmonie – Kammermusiksaal and the Neue Nationalgalerie by Mies van der Rohe. The building has an architectural language familiar to the Scharoun Philharmonic (completed in 1963), but adapted to a library program.
It is a building of enormous volumes of more than 300 meters long, where only from a distance you can see the monumental scale of the whole.
The volumes of the reading rooms, offices are sewn together, for stairs and small level changes, which invites the user to explore the various rooms. From outside the library is a room after another with different levels and different orientations, from within roofs at different heights where light appears and disappears.
