The University of Gdansk Library -- which the university plans as a centre of scientific information -- will eventually house over 700,000 volumes of research, such as spaceship of knowledge. The entire building is sheathed in a gleaming metallic finish created with Hunter Douglas QuadroClad façade panels.These innovative pods appear to be docked to the building futuristic façade, and serve as literal "escape capsules" that allow students and researchers to work in peace. The pods are but one of the features envisioned by ARCHICO Projekt architects to give their building a "tech" aesthetic.
