Spatial Significance in the Production of Knowledge : an Interpretation of the Functional Aspects of the Lund City Library in terms of its Architecture (English)
Abstract [en]

This paper aims to apply a specific architectural theory onto Lund City Library in order to achieve a better understanding of how the physical concept of the library is affecting our knowledge and our production of meaning; and furthermore how it suggests a certain form of usage. This paper discusses the ways in which architecture is affecting us when we use the library. The paper attempts to answer the following question: – Which one of Koch’s spatial structures could apply to Lund City Library, and in which ways could this spatial structure be a producer of meaning? The specific architectonical theory used is developed by Daniel Koch in his paper Spatial Systems as Producers of Meaning: the Idea of Knowledge in Three Public Libraries. This theory is the method of the paper as well. In order to answer the main question certain parts have been chosen and analyzed. The distribution of space in the building as well as some of the functions in the library, such as the seating, the system of the bookshelves, placement of public computers, and the social interaction, are in focus. The analysis shows that the spatial structure in Lund City Library is of the network type. The library is focusing on supporting the social interaction, which is an important producer of meaning for our own part in society. The collections and the functions are well integrated in the library, the seating and the placement of public computers supports the social interaction as well. Their construction and placement agrees with and encourages human interaction.
