About this spot
Tiel’s public library is a culture building which is situated between the city centre and the river Waal. The remarkable façade of Zinder Education comprises faceted aluminium elements, anodised with a golden colour. Together, the folded panels form an origami pattern presenting a constantly varying image to the inhabitants of Tiel, depending on the perspective, weather conditions and time of day.

The large windows provide a view of what is happening in the building. From the street you catch a glimpse of the dancers rehearsing, see sculpture students at work, and your attention is drawn to a concert in the multi-functional hall. The stone façade of the library is chiselled, whereby the solid volume becomes livelier and lighter and stands out from the podium constructed from flame-finished, natural stone. The façades have storey-high glass strips that guarantee maximum contact between interior and exterior. Here, too, the large windows reveal what is happening inside the building.

By designing the window frames in gold aluminium as well, it all became part of the “golden lantern” family.
