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 Bøgeberg 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:
