    The old library is the oldest Berlin library building, and at the same time also the first independent Berlin library construction of the town.
    The building takes the whole west side of the today's Bebelplatzes with which it contrasts with the surrounding constructions and makes
    in a certain way incredibly.

    The old library originated in the years from 1775 to 1780 by order of Friedrich II in 1774 the king gives the instruction to build a royal
    library to accommodate there his collections of books. These were accommodated since 1661 in the so-called chemist's shop wing of the
    Berlin town castle. Founded under elector Friedrich Wilhelm in 1661, these collections which are called in the beginning health
    resort-princely library, from 1701 as a royal library form the origins of the today's state library.

    The old library is now considered single preserved example of architecture of high baroque in Northern Germany. A rectangular central
    projection on the right as well as left curved wing and corner pavilions (page projections) join with Corinthian columns and pilasters is at the
    Centre of the facade. Due to its curved façade, the Berlin baptize the building shortly after its construction simply chest of drawers. To the
    outside 4-storey working, the construction after his completion in truth contains only two floors. The base floor as well as the upper floor
    encloses in each case two window rows.

    The second world war, during which, particularly the center of Berlin must accept severe damage, is not passing at the old library. in 1945 it
    burns out completely. Only some parts of the facades remain. The stills before the portal are perfect, the figure decoration on the attic well
    one-third destroyed. The southern corner Risalit suffers heavy damage, the Interior no longer exist. In 1963, the demolition work on the
    Bauruine start. From 1965 to 1969 the old library under the leadership of Werner Kötteritzsch is rebuilt then. The old façade is keeping
    unchanged. The Interior of the building is rebuilt according to the modern requirements of use as University buildings.

    Today the old library is used still by Humboldt-Universität - as headquarters of the Faculty of law.
    Sorry for my bad English!

Every time I look at your work, I'm impressed. The quality of the photographs is amazing, and the subject matter fascinates me. I dare someone to find architecture like this, or like the Berlin cathedral, where I'm at. There's just no comparison between German architecture and what's here in America.

can I live in Germany instead? :XD:

    .°♥.¨¨¨ ✿ڿڰۣ  Woah ... Thank you for your detailed and nice feedback!
    Let yourself be fooled by my photos, please do not.
    You know determines that there is a modern side of Berlin.
    I am especially interested in the old architecture, so I photograph them.
    Berlin also has other sites, for example, only high-rise buildings or
    buildings not maintained. Berlin is very varied.
    But I'm very glad to know that you this site (old architecture) like.
    PS: Where exactly do you live in America? :heart:  ✿ڿڰۣ ¨¨¨.♥°.

No problem. :)

Don't worry, I'm not fooled. I know enough about cities to know they all have different sides. I've also seen pictures of Berlin's more modern architecture, as well. I'm just saying I love the stuff that's like this.

(I live in the East-North Central part, in Michigan; "The Mitten State")

Ich mag die alte Bibliothek von Alexandria am besten!
Und ich möchte auch die berühmten Bibliotheken in Moskau besuchen...

Aha ... Du meinst die Bibliothek von Alexandria an der ägyptischen Mittelmeerküste?
Ja, sie galt in der hellenistischen Zeit als die größte Schriftensammlung der antiken Welt
und soll bis zu 700.000 Papyrus-Schriftrollen umfasst haben.
In Zusammenarbeit mit der UNESCO wurde die Bibliothek von Alexandria neu errichtet
und 2002 eröffnet. Seither kommen jährlich rund 800.000 Menschen dorthin.
Leider, ich kenne diese Bibliothek und die in Moskau nicht!

Ja, ich meinte diese Bibliothek in Alexandria. Zum Glück, kann man sie in einem der Tomb Raider Spiele besuchen! ('The Lost Library' Mission :D). Das neue Gebäude ist auch ganz nett.
In Moskau möchte ich die Staatsbibliothek zu sehen - sie ist sehr schön und klassisch!
