• Library Buildings in Europe

  • The Library Buildings in Europe website records  examples of good and interesting library buildings throughout Europe; it is a benchmarking tool for all those involved in new or refurbished library building projects including librarians, architects or any other professionals.

    The aim is to inspire and support anyone working on a library building project – a new building, an extension, a renovation, or a reworking of interior spaces. The wide variety of case studies will enable those involved in such projects to pick up on new trends, to share knowledge and experience, and to learn from, and make contact with, each other.

    Members of the LIBER Architecture Group (LIBER LAG) are delighted to offer this project as a tool to stimulate innovative ideas and new approaches to transforming the library model in the 21st century.

    Main aims of the project were to close the five old small library locations in Winterthur, provide new services for the students and the scientists, extend the number of reader seats, workplaces and group rooms, and create a learning landscape with an activity-based conception of more than 1700 square meters.
