The Rolex Learning Center is the name of the new library of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne. Here, studying alone among steel shelves is a thing of the past. Instead, this library of the future is meant to be a marketplace for ideas. "We've created something like a Disneyland of knowledge here," says David Aymonin, the man who oversaw construction. "We librarians are no longer beholden to the books as much as to the users."
