The library wanted to create a touch point in the upcoming town hall (spoorzone) in the city. The problem was how and what service could the library provide at the location? The users of this service would be the citizens of Delft who come to the town hall for a variety of tasks. Following from this, an information service was formulated, it aimed at stimulating connections between the citizens and voluntary organisations (encouraging social cohesion) and celebrating the citizen through the people-generated stories, additionally creating awareness about social citizen initiatives in the city (encouraging a sense of empowerment). The final concept used a Microsoft multi touch surface to execute the user interface (UI), to display certain multi media content relevant to the above themes. Apart from the UI, the physical embodiment of the touch surface considered spatial constraints of the town hall, concluding by embedding the surface with the waiting area furniture.
