State Library Of Tasmania - Hobart

The State Library of Tasmania in Hobart is a classic example of post post war glass curtain design, and is considered important because it was one of the first of it's style and type in Tasmania.  Designed in 1960, the patterns and reflections that shimmer off the glass and aluminum surface create a stunning focal point. This is just one part of the building complex which is vast in its size.
