The Question Club
Question for the nerds/geeks/gamers: |
Imagine a community center that was designed towards nurturing nerdy/geeky skills & fun. Sort of like a social library, with books, gaming tables, board games, movie/video game rooms, clubs/groups, classes, publications, computer labs, etc.
What kind of programs would you want to see there for children (K-12) [after school, weekend, summer programming]? What kinds of things would you want to see there for young adults (college and post college)? How about for adults and senior citizens?
What kind of all community events would you want?
Do you like the idea of a layout where all ages mix together or would you prefer to see a children's room, a YA section, and an adult section?
I am not in graduate school yet (will be going in sept 2010), but for an independent project/master's thesis/blablabla, I'd like to design a place like this that could be either placed inside of public libraries, or be a branch of a public library, that wasn't specific to one location (a blueprint that could be used anywhere in the U.S.). I have a ton of ideas, I'm just curious to know what you think.
