Geocache Description:


La bibliothèque universitaire des sciences de Grenoble a été construite de 1965 à 1967, sur les plans de l'architecte Olivier Cacoub. Alors que la plupart des bâtiments du campus sont conçus sur des schémas rectangulaires, la bibliothèque se caractérise par des formes complexes : des murs rarement parallèles, des angles aigus ou obtus, des toitures sur plusieurs niveaux. Cette esthétique, dans la ligne de celle de la place centrale, stimule l'imagination, rappelant les reliefs alentours, l'architecture montagnarde...
L'originalité de cet édifice en a fait l'emblème du campus. Il est classé au patrimoine du XXème siècle.

A l'intérieur, se trouve une mosaïque murale monumentale de Paul Guiramand, représentant les quatre éléments.
