Fun Fact Friday #6: The one with the languages

The new city library is definitely worth a visit because it looks amazing inside. Not so much from the outside though. But don’t rush through the doors without looking up. You might miss something…

One every side of the building you find a word written on the facade: library. But in four different languages. When you look at the building from the west, it says “Library”, from the north “Bibliothek“. On the wall facing the south you find the word library written in Arabic and from the East in Korean – because the architect of the new city library is South Korean.

On the facade of city library Stuttgart you find the word Library written in four different languages.
