This picture was taken on the campus of the Freie Universität in Berlin a week ago. I was there for an interview and was walking around the building before the session was scheduled. The library looks really incredibly futuristic and in the picture it’s really hard to figure out what it is, because it has so many weird lines and structures. I loved it.

Sadly I already know that I didn’t get the stipend I applied for – lots of tough competition – and now the search for the Holy Grail of academia (PhD funding) continues. Oh well. You win some, you lose some.

    • Thanks Jennifer! I especially like that it’s unclear what kind of structure even creates them.

  5. So cool! I’m very happy I get to look at the finished structure / elements and didn’t have to figure out how to assemble something like that!
