    Walters Library -- Photo-collage

    by shrimp56 Updated Oct 8, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This building is hard to resist. The renovation has created interest and beauty in every corner. It is an interesting contrast to see the students hard at work on the most modern of technologies in this ornate high-ceilinged reading room!

    The Walter Engineering Library at UMinn

    This landmark building was recently restored, although the outside gives little hint of the beautiful details inside. It is right on the main university quandrangle.

    This is a detail of the carved stone "mouldings" in one of the reading rooms. What a beautiful place to study!
