Libraries 2040 | The first seven Libraries of the Future

A vision of the future for public libraries was revealed at seven locations in the Netherlands. These seven future libraries ranged from the partisan library designed by the children to intimate sitting room libraries in the homes of well-known inhabitants of Brabant and a spectacular new library concept designed by one of the best known architects of the Netherlands, Winy Maas. All seven projects demonstrated the viability of libraries and also a plea for greater imagination and inspiration in designing future libraries.
