YourFry Toronto: Designing the Future of the Library
On November 6th, Ryerson University’s Transmedia Zone, Penguin Books, and the Toronto Reference Library teamed up with over 60 readers, storytellers, designers, makers and innovators to envision the library of the future. Teams tackled design fictions for architecture, interface design, and narrative. The design challenge was successful in generating outside-of-the-box ideas that envisioned the future of story, community, and learning, with the library at the forefront of each concept.
The following is a trailer for a longer-form interactive documentary about the Toronto event. Listen, explore and open your mind as some of Canada's most dynamic thinkers in the fields of architecture, fabrication and electronics, journalism, interface and experience design, digital humanities, storytelling, and interior design explore the future of the library.
The full-length interactive documentary will be available to check out in January 2015 at libraryofthefuture.ca
