Drilling Erasmus

Marc Dessauvage's building the Erasmusgebouw in Leuven is being torn apart (slightly) by builders. They are, among other things, removing original doors fitted in 1972 and using them as planks to put debris (lighting fixtures, ceiling adapters for modular ceiling panels etc.) inside the big skip blocking one of the side entrances.

Alas they are using heavy machinery to redo some rooms that have to be adapted to accommodate the ever growing number of students. The drilling is resonating throughout the building and is reaching upper floors of the library.
I am currently in the reference room on the first floor and am going (now as a matter of fact) to relocate to another building on site to escape the monotone machine music.
