Central Library

Knowledge acquisition is a fundamental question in the Time-Human-Space context, since we are part of a process, a timeless chain, in which the knowledge is the cohesive power. In the age of globalization, mobilization and electronics, it seems that any information will be possible to access anywhere – in principles. But what does the future bring – in practice? What does the library mean in the present context? What is the difference between locally regardless knowledge and the only locally available knowledge? What extras can the future library offer?

The wider PLACE becomes a whole with the Library: the institution of participatory and representational democracy, the scenes of public life and arts, the building of Library with the infinite space of knowledge.
