The age of multimedia constitutes a great challenge for libraries as they have to reinvent themselves to meet the constantly growing demands of digital applications. As a result, within the past decade, libraries have evolved from introverted hoards of knowledge to globally networked information and communication hubs. The architectural implementation of this transformation process has resulted in sophisticated buildings that succeed in combining impressive architecture with the complex contemporary requirements.

The new edition of Masterpieces: Library Architecture + Design shows that this process of transformation is far from over. Projects covered include: Book Mountain + Library Quarter (MVRDV); National Library of Sejong (Samoo Architects & Engineers); Stuttgart City Library (Eun Yong Yi); King Fahad National Library (Gerber Architects); Espa–a Library (Mazzanti & Arquitectos S.A.)
