The new library building design for the German University of Administrative Sciences is integrated into the Speyer campus designed by architect Sep Ruf by picking up on and re-interpreting the materials and form of his architecture. A funnel-shaped reading room that owes its spatial concept to the anatomical theatre of the Renaissance leads from within the library to all storeys in the building.
