‘library 2.0’ is the master thesis project of daniel mayer at the technical university of vienna. based on a competition from AWR, the concept centers itself around discovering ways to incorporate modern technologies into a library setting in order to ease the change from print to digital medias.

serving as a hub of communication, the program enables person-to-person exposure through a dominantly open organization platform. a large void, and flexible space around it, acts as a connector through which visitors can access: reading spaces, seminar rooms, lecture and research areas, multi-functional activity rooms, exhibition zone, daycare, games room, café, bar, and other informal areas.

the ‘library 2.0’ communicates with surroundings — it is situated in the center of copenhagen, denmark opposite of the national opera and next to palace amalienbog — via a semi-transparent façade, and large plaza. the concept offers a potential way forward for the library, and offers visitors a plethora of areas to gather, learn, and discuss.
