East Boston library inspired by the blended community it serves - The Boston Globe

East Boston library inspired by the blended community it serves - The Boston Globe | Shared Space, Shared Resources, Strong Communities | Scoop.it
Walking around inside the new East Boston branch of the Boston Public Library sometimes feels like wandering across a rolling outdoor landscape. Light filters down from what looks like the sky but is in reality a roof of luminous, undulating cloudlike shapes. Down below at the floor, there are no walls or partitions. The whole space of the library, at least the part the public has access to, is one huge room. Elders, toddlers, video gamers, moms and pops, teens keeping a watchful eye on their younger siblings: All share the same space. It’s as if a variety of ages and interest groups were camping out in an open meadow. This is the best small contemporary library I’ve seen anywhere.

No Space Like Shared Space

No Space Like Shared Space | Shared Space, Shared Resources, Strong Communities | Scoop.it
In the Northeast we had a test last week of whether people really wanted to stay home to get work done or to come to the office. In most cases, the office won. But not immediately. On the first snow day, last Monday, many people stayed at home doing paperwork and reading, and ended the day with a feeling of accomplishment. A vice president with Lotus spoke on the radio about how he had given lunch to his daughters and then went back to his study. It sounded idyllic. No commute. The virtual workplace could be efficient, comfortable and satisfying.
