Library in London

All,

I recently saw some pictures of a very white interior of a building, with very distinctive glass roof, I think it was a library. I've got a day planned in November to walk London during the day and have some night stuff planned, but very keen to find out what this building was, where it is and whether it's open to the public?

Any ideas?

Many thanks,

Ian

That sounds like it. I recall the place being very white.

[Edit] Found a picture

Muscle is 100% correct. To get that (typical shot) you need to not enter the main hall and instead go up the stairs near the entrance and from there you'll be able to capture that shot through the open window at the top.

Re: Library in London

There is also a great shot of the wording on the floor at the bottom of the stairs.

Re: Library in London

You can also take shots after dark. I visited last year in November for the Terracota Army Exhibition but spent more of my time taking photos of the museum. One of the shots after dark is below but I did not have a tripod and nor was I doing HDR then so could do a lot better now.



If you look at the brightly lit window in the shot below, that is where the earlier shot that JAG showed was taken from.
