Great Second Life Destinations: The Gorgeous Virtualization of the Tromso Library on Jimmy Warbaum's Tromso Sim


Norway has some amazing modern architecture. The Tromso Library, located inside the arctic circle in the far northern part of the country, is a gorgeous structure. The building is constructed under the original roof of a movie cinema, which was designed by the architect Gunnar B√łgeberg Haugen and built in 1969.  It was turned into a library in 2005.

Jimmy Warbaum's Tromso sim, which I have reviewed and photographed several times earlier (see links below) now has a virtualization of the library which really is well done. Although the scale of the interior is reduced, it is very well designed, and is recommended for visiting -- along with the modern Cathedral of the Arctic and the other structures and landscaping of one of Second Life's most atmospheric residential sims. Recommended for a visit.

An amazing panoramic view of the Library in real life can be found at:
