The aim of the proposal is to conceptualize and design a new intriguing room that will attract young people between 15 and 35 years old. A space for synergies, an informal and creative educational space, a field of social and network interaction within a typical existing library shell, where librarians and users enjoy being there and “feel at home“ during the entire day, while being surrounded by people, books and technology.

Our design proposal introduces “Terminal” as the departure point of one‘s journey within the Future Library. The title refers both to transportation and computer-technology terminology. It stands for a local community portal, a departure point to a journey into the world of technology, a point within a trajectory, a device for data entry. It also serves as a reference point forming a network – from and to – other “Terminals” of the Future Library organization, facilitating communication and connecting users. At the same time, it is an exciting and eventful place which hosts co-working activities, individual learning, technological services, small group meetings and leisure activities. Overall what we propose is a contemporary place where information, technology and knowledge is generated and communicated to the public.

The new library space proposes an open and flexible operating structure that could accommodate services and users on a 24h/7basis. The 24 hour concept is adjusted to the human body and mental state, relating activities with body posture and positioning, space and time. Studying and working, taking a break, discussing over lunch, interacting, relaxing are all part of the operation of the new study and internet space
