If the late 19th and early 20th-century was definedby mechanical technology, the 21st century hasdefined itself as an epoch of information marketswhose exchanges occur via digital networks. Theeffects of information technology are evident in mostall cultures but its effects are not as evidentregarding architecture. The investigation of atypology concerned with both information and culture,the library/mediatheque, will explore the conceptualinfluences of information technology on architecture.Present technological interfaces isolate persons withinformation sets and no longer allows for a societalcheck on the validity or importance of specificinformation. Partially as a reaction the contemporarylibrary has been called upon to provide increasingamounts of its area to public space. As technologycontinues to replace physical media, the library mustfurther devote its program to the societal need forpublic space & interpersonal exchange balanced with atechnologically influenced need for observation. Inthis way the library can be a display of inscribedinformation. Via its architecture it can educatepatrons in the navigation of, and connections betweeninformation.
