In the digital information age, when the boundaries of content producer and content consumer are increasingly blurred, The Architecture of Knowledge questions the fate of the public library. The library has historically been a vital component of civic life, but many aspects of its traditional function have already become contentious. This publication asks: what form should the library's physical structure assume to survive this new data-saturated society? This fascinating journey into the future of an age-old institution is obligatory reading for architects, librarians and users alike.
