Laurentius library is a ring-shaped space-frame structure that houses more than 10,000 collection of books. Designed by Anton Markus Pasing, this library has its own background story. It was based on a clergyman who lived on a lonely highway near small community. This man loved reading books, however the loneliness became more and more depressing by days, therefore, he decided to build a library that contains books of religion, ethic, and philosophy accessible to everyone who is interested.
This clergyman had his small home which built in 1939 altered and extended. Since he didn’t want to change the simplicity of his house, a classical extension was out of the question. After weeks in inconclusive doubt, he saw an angel in his dream and this angel gave him an idea how he should redesign the house. The result is Laurentius library that represents a house of angels in the middle of highway.
