Architektur ist der unmittelbare Spiegel des Lebens.
Ein Blick auf ein Gebäude genügt, und man bekommt ein Gefühl
für die Vergangenheit, den Genius Loci;
Bauwerke sind ein Abbild der Gesellschaft.

International Library Summit – The Book

LIBRARIES IN THE 21ST CENTURY
HOW THEY CHANGE SOCIETY AND ARCHITECTURE.

The reading room has been the centerpiece of a library for centuries. Libraries have changed quietly over the last 20 years. They have early and consciously adapted to the changes in digitization, have recognized the changing needs of their users for work in community and designed new spatial concepts. This Book presents the actual status of Libraries and Knowledge perception and how knowledge continues to exist with incredible social acceptance.
