Wandering in knowledge
The State- and Universitylibrary Bremen (SuUB) invited the University of the Arts Bremen to contribute to the 350th year anniversary with a design project. Since 350 years, The State- and Universitylibrary Bremen organises and structures information and makes it accessible for the visitors. Searching and retrieving information are the main requests of the library’s visitors. An almost endless flow of information inquiries are obtained and fulfilled on daily basis. In this respect, the students of the University of the Arts Bremen granted an aesthetic and poetic expression to this invisible procedure. In the center of the 15 meters high stairway of the library, a sculpture of folded paper demonstrates the connection between the traditional storage medium and the digital information world. The permanent flow of information inquiries at the SuUB runs through on a vertical axis between four floors of the building. The random results of the inquiries release corresponding visuals of text and pictures which cause curiosity for the various activites in the library. .
