Books, magazines and much more...

On the 5th floor of the AB-building of the University of Applied Sciences Bremen at the location
Neustadtswall 30 is the building documentation and the photo studio of the School of Architecture
Bremen (SoAB), which is supervised by the Dipl.-Ing. Architektur Gehadeldin Adam.
In the front part of the 161 m² area is the building documentation of the School of Architecture. Here
architecture students, teachers and researchers can work, use the extensive reference stock of
architectural journals/books and product documentation available there and get help and advice
from Mr. Adam.

Self-study plays an important role in the study of architecture. This can take place partly in the
building documentation and in the photo studio of the SoAB under the expert advice and supervision
of Mr. Adam.


As in a library, the SoAB's Building Documentation and Photo Studio are intended for use by
students, faculty, and researchers individually and in small groups, but not as a place for courses.
Unlike a library, the Building Documentation and Photo Studio are not staffed by a librarian, but by
an experienced and knowledgeable graduate engineer who supports independent study by
architecture students and provides advice and assistance to students.


In the form of a reference library, journals, product documents, books, bachelor and master theses, dissertations, architectural videos (...) are provided. Online research in the library catalog and the resulting possibilities of pre-ordering, interlibrary loan, etc. are possible via PCs. The building documentation is in close partnership with the State and University Library. Copiers (with refectory card) and scanners are available to the users of the construction documentation.


In the back of the premises is the photo studio. Here, architecture students, teachers and researchers can professionally photograph architectural models and receive advice from Mr. Adam. They can use the cameras, tripods and studio lights as well as different backgrounds or borrow photographic equipment for architectural and outdoor photography.


SoAB's media desk is also located in the building documentation area. Teachers and researchers can borrow presentation equipment for courses, presentations, lectures or exhibitions here.
