A fine example of contemporary architecture is the inner courtyard of the Library of the Law Institute (Bibliothek des Rechtswissenschaftlichen Institutes), which belongs to the University of Zurich.

The building was erected in 1909, but in2004 the interior underwent massive renovations after designs of the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. It was topped by an elliptical glass roof and equipped with several balconies finished in wood.

In theory the Library of the Law Institue is open to the public, but you have to be quiet when entering the building.

Directions:
The Library of the Law Institute is located on the eastern side of the river Limmat somewhere between the art museum "Kunsthaus" and the main University building. The tram stop "Kantonsschule", where trams #5 and #9 stop is just in front of the building. The entrance to the library is on the backside of the building.

Address: Library of the Law Institue, Rämistr. 74, Zurich
