We live in a time, in a new information age in which technology has become an inseparable part of our everyday life. It influences and impacts every aspect of our everyday living leading to the transformation of our society. It changes the ways we consume information, the way we search, handle and learn. In order to understand information preservation and sharing, its role and importance, I had to start from the beginning, with the 'house of knowledge', a library, and its role in the society, its influence, development and transformation through history. Thinking of today's urban and social development, people's needs, motivation and trends, as well as the whole transformation of the society affected by information and technology, I embarked upon creating a new building, a digital library and a public open working space situated on the Danube Canal.
