Rolex Learning Center - EPFL. DOK Library Concept Center - Delft, Hollande. Introduction At the heart of Delft, an old Dutch city with about 100,000 inhabitants, a library has been constructed, which opened in 2007.
The library building does not have the same iconic character as many other new libraries, but it is located in an easily accessible place, in the middle of the busiest part of Delft with open squares and cafes as its neighbours. The special thing about the library is its consistent endeavours to create a new library concept. The library has re-used an old building volume from a former supermarket, which has been given a new facade section in glass.
From the outset, the library was the object of international interest, because its interior design and its communication broke radically with classical book library traditions.
