In 2015, LOWTECHCAMPUS (a collaboration with designer Florian de Visser) traveled to Istanbul, London and Tokyo. It was an inpsiration-journey for the library of the future as part of the project Out of the Bieb

Focal point of the research was an investigation of the physical library in the digital age. Digitalisation challenges the existence of libaries. LOWTECHCAMPUS discovered several aspects in favour of a physical library. The configuration and designated purpose of a space can influence and assist the user to achieve the right mindset to study, creating or focus.

We came to define this proposition as ‘scripted space’, because of the physical steps it requires for an individual to enter a certain space. It is both physically moving as mentally transitioning.
to a different mode of operation.

LOWTECHCAMPUS visualised a number of scripted spaces in an animation, soundscape and spatial collage. Featured spaces are: Orhan Pamuk's The Museum of Innocence, Sir John Soane's Museum, Japanese manga cafés, community spaces, various parks and gardens and a sentō (public bath).
