[NOTE002] Architectural Record in March, Building Type Study: Libraries (1)

Beauty of the book
-Libraries in the digital age raise questions about the place of books. By James Murdock

It’s easy/ to get excited/ about the design of libraries. (Architecturally) they provide an opportunity/ for designers/ to manifest , (in spatial form,) such abstract concepts (such as discovery, inspiration, and community.) (Increasingly) they serve  the public/ by providing everything/ from books and movies to internet access and educational programs, (free of charge). With this in mind, RECORD is devoting the pages of this issue to libraries worldwide, (some public, some academic). (Curiously), many still (prominently) feature  the book as a design element. Books make great props,/ (as any interior designer knows),/ and (generously) stocked bookshelves also have a bold visual impact. But within publishing and academic circles,/ many wonder/ if the book has become, (according to one observer), an “outdated technology.”

Video: 30 square meter house in Japan


Do you think you could live in a house no bigger than a parking space? And not just by yourself, do you think you could live there with your mother? Apparently, Fuyuhito Moriya can. Check the video from CNN and tell us what you think.

 


I think it could be nice living in that such a super-small house! Actually I'm living in a very small single room- about 5 squre meter. So I've figured out what it's like living in such a compact small space. I think it's just a challange, keeping things minimum. And I'll tell you what. I have one more cup than her. Great.
