Good design takes into consideration 1) what the structure will house/display, and 2) determine how people will interact and move within the space. In the future, will libraries require large structures to secure volumes of collections? Will they be characterized as meeting spaces to inspire various creative pursuits? Or, some unique combination of the two reflecting the mission based on the intended library type? Only time will tell the fate of tomorrow’s libraries. However, this week just for fun, CMLE highlights existing national and international libraries sporting futuristic designs.
