Restoration of a Labrouste reading room dome

In early 2014, the spectacular restoration of the Labrouste reading room is going on. In the late summer, the restoration of the room's ornements and windows has been completed; the restoration work currently focuses on the room's floor and the hemicycle. The room's floor has been entirely removed; technical ducts for the electric feeding of consultation tables are being put in. Scafoldings are being assembled in the hemicycle which should be entirely restored during March 2014.
