The new central library for Berlin should be an open and inviting building which is embedded in the context of the Tempelhofer Filed and should be a catalyst to this context.

The appearance of the building is defined by the internal organisation. Various cuts into the building volume organise the functional and spatial relations. Through this cut, the library areas are transformed in the multi-layer spatial organisation and provide a unique atmosphere to the library. The cuts create a continuity of voids providing a continuos public space within the central library.
