Precedents for Experimentation: Talking Libraries with Shannon Mattern and Nate Hill

“Our understanding of what constitutes knowledge is evolving. A lot of people will attribute this to the digital revolution, but I don’t think it’s that simple: for example, traditions of craftsmanship have recognized different types of knowledge acquisition for thousands of years, among them apprenticeships. And today, even in formal institutions, people are realizing that learning isn’t just about “the sage on a stage” or the one definitive text you pull off a library shelf. It’s about making, experimentation, collaboration, multi-sensorial experiences. All of these different kinds of learning can be facilitated by a well-designed space.” – Precedents for Experimentation: Talking Libraries with Shannon Mattern and Nate Hill
