Library in a Shipping Container April 8, 2013 – Tags: ,

Welcome to The Amin Library in Batu, Indonesia, a new eight-room public library and clinic designed by dpavilion architects and made entirely out of recycled shipping containers!

Eight containers in all were used with each color corresponding to a different function.

Green  – main lobby
Blue – entertainment and popular books
Red – extends out as a canopy over an open-air circular reading terrace, and holds the science and technology books
Yellow – women’s reading room.
