Some days I’m really into the library shelves. I think it comes from my hobby of music collection: exploring history, investigating ideas. However, my tech-enabled futurist mindset sees a not-so-distant future when our school library will go the way of Blockbuster (startups like Oysterbooks.com
are already sealing this fate). At that time, my best hope is that I get to keep my real estate in this building and it begins to take the shape of Slugline (shout out to all the House of Cards fans)Minimalist furniture designs, bean bag chairs, book “space” overtakes book shelves. I’m pretty sure this is exactly what The Third Teacher
was referencing about interior design in the 21st century.
