Very new, very big…and no internet…

…on day one of the new Amsterdam public library. It must be the largest public space with a roof in the city. Its modernity will take some getting used to but the view from the OBA 7th floor terrace is spectacular. The location near the Centraal Station is a bold move but the surrounding area is still a building site so it will take a while to become part of a living community. Everything is fully automated and its so big that it fels like an airport terminal. When I asked about wifi I was told that the whole system was down and nobody knew how long it would take to get it all working. Still I’m looking forward to my next visit and curious how it will develop.
