Seeing - Rococo


I made a short visit today to an administrative building.  Build in 1760 as an university college, it became an institute in cellular biology (microscopy) in 1890 and is used now by the administration after a renovation in 2000(?).



After the context some woodworks.  For the last renovation they apparently removed the plaster and the low ceilings in the roof.  The rust spots of the nails holding the old plasterwork on the oak beams can be seen.  Surrounded by flat white walls only the woodwork shows some baroque curves.
