About the artwork

Born in Paris, French photographer Thibaud Poirier is passionate about travel. For this series, he roams Europe in search of historic sites of knowledge. In Rome, he visited the hundred-year old libraries Angelica and Casanatense and in Dublin the famous Trinity College Library, the largest in Ireland. Finally, in Berlin, he captured a new generation of architecture when he visited the University of Applied Sciences and the central library of Grimm Zentrum.
