Library and Learning Centre
New building constructed for the University of Economics & Business Vienna, Austria.
Uniting all the key functions of study in a unique way, the Library and Learning Center will be more than just library in the traditional sense, but it’ll be a multifunctional structure that will cater different groups simultaneously. It will be a research and a service facility, a workplace and lounge, a place of communication and a traffic hub, in addition to the new library.
