I can’t imagine getting trough my studies without heading everyday to the Neue Staatsbibliothek at Berlin’s Potsdamer Platz which everybody would call the „marriage market“ (fashion crisis every single morning…). Pushing the doors open and climbing up the stairs would always make my heart bumping and it felt like all brain cells would start glowing and blinking. I guess libraries are way ahead of our contemporary co-working spaces which start popping up in the creative centres of metropolis. If your mind needs a little push to be refocused, invite it to one of these amazing places.
