"The world has been Googled. We don't search for information, we Google it" Auletta's statement might imply once again the death of libraries. Yet in the digital age, paradoxically, the construction of new libraries is booming. Library buildings have also undergone a radical change: from deposit to workplaces, but also urban elements. This book focuses on this topic as far as architectural design is concerned. 11 case studies are described and projects for a medium-size innovative library are also proposed. In the first part the role of reading, the randomness of discovery and other issues are focused as guidelines for the design of modern libraries.
