Library 3.0

This project for the Amsterdam Central Library focused on social interaction encompassing the physical aspects of the library environment. The result deals with the library’s desire to bring people sharing the same interests together.

The outcome of this project is an integrated piece of furniture in a form of an interactive tabletop as a physical representation of the online 2.0 applications but with the added value of social and tangible interaction. This study investigated how a novel interactive tabletop can enhance the experience of social browsing through digital collections within a public library. A prototype of an interactive tabletop was developed that encompasses a physical manner of browsing in a setup allowing for higher levels of social interaction.
