Play of lights

The Scientific Information Center and Academic Library (SICAL) is located in the City Center of Katowice in the area of the University of Silesia campus. The stone used for the façade, whose colour is composed with the context of the place and harmonizes with the red bricks on the existing buildings. 4 004 glazed cavities in the façade will doze at night artificial light on the façade, and in daytime – allow the flow of the dispersed natural light into the interior of the Library. The inside building’s walls will be covered by the laminated red sandstone.

Main functions of the Library are located around the three-level hall and stairways illuminated by daylight through a glassy part of the roof.
