Abstract

IT has been said that the ideal library, or for the matter of that, the ideal museum, theatre, hospital or any other building serving a special purpose, should be so constructed as to have to be pulled down and rebuilt every half‐century, in order to accommodate the practice of new ideas. Normally, of course, the new wine has to be insinuated into the old bottles gently enough to avoid disaster.
