Overview

The role of libraries in society has changed and evolved in recent years, with the increasing importance of online sources. Modern libraries must strike a balance between housing significant amounts of printed material, providing access to digital material, and serving as a hub of activities within the community, whether that community is a neighborhood of a city, or a specific field of study at a university. Libraries provide an exciting challenge for contemporary architecture studios, and this volume details some of the most inspiring projects in recent years from around the world, with full-color photographs, plans, and insightful descriptions from the architects themselves.
