Library buildings

DTU Library, Ballerup, has a central location on campus. The room itself is a round tower with three floors inspired by Gunnar Asplund’s round library in Stockholm. The library tower is a landmark on campus and was designed by PLH Arkitekter A/S.

From the centre of the vaulted ceiling there is a large chandelier inspired by the Rutherford-Bohr model of the atom. The three rings with 60 halogen lamps symbolise the electron paths.
