Until very recently, urban culture has been determined by buildings and institutions: museums, theatres, concert halls, libraries, academies/universities and socio-cultural centres as well as palaces, parks and churches: all are witnesses to our cultural heritage.Set in stone, the representation as well as the functional responsibility of these outdated institutions are mixed up by the information and network society, then either rejected or re-evaluated. In the informational city, “old” education and cultural institutions such as libraries reflect with particular clarity the structural changes of the digital society.
