Library Machines: A Lo-Fi Design Conversation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The future of libraries is here for the making.
Library Machines is the time and space to get folks together to imagine, design and market new Library Machines.
What’s a Library Machine? They follow a little formula, “mad libs”-style:
“It's a special kind of _______ (SITE) _______ (THING) that when you ________ (ACTION) it __________ (REACTION)! It's cool because ____________________ (TELL US WHY IT'S COOL).”
E.g.
It’s a special kind of (READING ROOM) (ENVIRONMENT) that when you (WALK INSIDE) it (DISRUPTS WIFI AND CELLULAR CONNECTIVITY). It’s cool because (CROSSING THE THRESHOLD ALTERS YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH TECHNOLOGY).
Successor to last year's “Libraries: The Ultimate Playground,” we’ll begin with some brief inspiration, jump right into a no-skills-required design sprint and finish up with show and tell.
Facilitators, props and architecture-student designed Library Machines will be on hand to spark ideas and keep the energy high.
