Library as Place

"We have barely began to develop sophisticated framework for the future of the library as a physical space."

This was the main focus of our group presentation. In the rise of technology the traditional library is destined to perish. Libraries as a whole must be innovative in the way that they meet the needs of the users. But a library should not experience a one hundred percent digital overhaul because librarians are what separate the library from a bookstore or coffee shop. with our discoveries we found that the only logical solution was to allow the digital and traditional to work together to create a new type of library space/destination. But also create a space that will be flexible throughout future iterations or interpretations of the design/experience of the space.
