"The library closes off at an oblique angle the third side of the park/court established by the main buildings of the Institute of Technology, begun twenty-two years previously. As a major reference library, the main problem was to provide good working conditions for the students over a three-storey basement for the library stacks. These spaces, and the small lending collection are housed in a faceted volume on the side, away from the main buildings. In the rectilinear tail of the building, offices and seminar rooms are provided." From: David Dunster, ed. Architectural Monographs 4: Alvar Aalto. p48.
