In a previous post, I recommended a visit to DOK, a concept library in Delft, (The Netherlands). The idea of a total media library is not new, but it is news if the concept and design does really works in reality. This is a photo-essay of my visit and through the images you can feel my reactions to the place. All in all and without being able to use the services, I must say I do like the concept, the design works and the atmosphere was that of a place that is being used, well used. It is also a meeting place, with catering services, a whole area for childen, with games, and of course the mediotheque, the audiovisual area with furniture-designed to provide a secluded area for video/audio uses.
The reinvention of the library in the age of media, is still possible!
