An exhibition on the construction of the Zentralbibliothek Zürich

The Zentralbibliothek Zürich opened its doors 100 years ago. To mark this event, an exhibition from 13 December 2016 to 2 September 2017 in the Turicensia space presents largely unknown photographs of the building work in 1914–1917. They are accompanied by texts on the planning and implementation of the construction project. Visitors can also build a Zentralbibliothek of their own – either the present-day building from a kit or a virtual version from 1917 via the touchscreen.
