New Models

This module got me thinking about how libraries embrace change in terms of physical spaces, especially after viewing the NC State University Hunt Library and the Dokk1 library in Aarhus in previous modules. My only real venture in designing library spaces was being part of the design team for a library space that had previously held the children’s collection (which had been moved to another floor). Weeks of meetings and months of planning paid off, and we unveiled our LevelUp coworking space last fall.

I decided to search for other libraries that have innovative uses for their spaces – designed for people rather than books. Here are some of my favorites:

Vennesla Library in Norway

Kulturhuset Stadsteatern in Stockholm, Sweden

Charlotte Mecklenberg Library in North Carolina

Teesside University library in England

Soneva Kiri library in Thailand

Biblioteca Sandro Penna in Perugia, Italy
