#076 Library of Physical Nostalgia


B7_#076 // The Library // Ness Lafoy

This drawing imagines how the traditional typology and content of our libraries may have to be adapted in a post physical future. In a future where we may crave physical reality, discomfort and natural phenomena the library could be converted to store a collection of recreated physically nostalgic experiences like walking barefoot in the desert, climbing a mountain or swimming in the sea all of which have been replaced in day-to-day life by virtual and simulated reality – a library of physical life on earth.
