Can we create library environments that inspire people to be more creative, collaborative, reflective, or engaged? That is the driving question of this imaginative book. Brian Mathews (Virginia Tech Libraries) weaves elements together from architecture, psychology, retail, neuroscience, and many other disciplines in this narrative about the evolution of library buildings. Re-conceptualizing libraries as showrooms, studios, salons, and boutiques, some new directions are outlined for discussion about the future. The text encourages you and your team to look beyond the functional value of your facility, and to consider how libraries can also serve as an experimental landscape that helps foster well being and personal growth.

Featuring drawings and renderings from interior designer Leigh Ann Soistmann, Encoding Space is ideal for librarians and campus administrators looking to spark their creative thinking and push strategic conversations about the purpose, value, and future of library buildings.

About the Author:

Brian Mathews is an associate dean and learning space developer at the Virginia Tech Libraries. He has also held library positions at the University of California - Santa Barbara, Georgia Tech, and the George Washington University.

Leigh Ann Soistmann studied interior design at Virginia Tech.

Review:

Given the breadth of its research and the accessibility of its writing, Encoding Space should be required reading for librarians and library administrators. --Portal: Libraries and the Academy

[R]eading this book and understanding the basic concepts proposed is well worth consideration for any library and librarian as we move forward, deeper into the 21st century. --Journal of Learning Spaces
