The staircase leading upstairs also has beautiful handrails but these are wooden ones, in different shapes. A round handrail for a round column.
I go back downstairs, slip into the corridor that takes me to the side wing of C building. This is where the Aalto library, or Aalto Reading Room is. The library has given in to today's technology; the reading tables are equipped with computers. Do students and researchers still come here to read books or do they focus on the computer screen? At least there is room for both.
