University Library Utrecht
Kim Zwarts was invited to create a motif for the glasspanels of the façade of the new University Library of Utrecht, to reduce sunlight penetration and protectthe books. Finally a black and white print of willowtrees was printed in the silkscreen technic on the glass façades. The same motif was used in the concrete and casted to create a bas-relief on the solid parts of the building. They form the closed concrete volumes which mark the book depositories of the building.
