The coolest little free library yet? May 30, 2013 – Posted in: books in design, Library Architecture
Check out what just popped up in the nolita neighborhood of New York City. A Little Free Library courtesy of a partnership between the Architectural League of New York and PEN World Voices Festival.
No, it’s not on loan from the Science Fiction Museum, nor is it lifted from an Isaac Asimov novel or a Buckminster Fuller sketchbook.
Designed by Venezuelan architects Marcelo Ertorteguy and Sara Valente the Little Free Library “creates an ‘inhabitable’ environment, where users can immerse themselves into the space, taking the time to browse through books and borrow or exchange them.”
It’s as private a library experience one could hope for in an urban landscape.
