Little libraries travelling to Africa - Minneapolis Star Tribune

Little libraries travelling to Africa - Minneapolis Star Tribune | #hyperlib | Scoop.it

The tiny libraries perched in front of houses throughout the Twin Cities are taking a 6,000-mile journey to Africa this year.

...

The popular "Little Free Libraries,'' which look like oversized mailboxes, have paired up with the nonprofit Books for Africa. The colorful wooden libraries, shaped like schools or cottages, are expected to be open for business in Ghana in the months ahead.

"We've wanted to expand to Africa, and we saw Books for Africa as the perfect partner,'' said Todd Bol, co-founder of Little Free Libraries, launched in Hudson, Wis., in 2009.

What is the future of the library? YouTube video

"This thesis won the National Corobrik Architectural Thesis Award 2010. I have made the entire Thesis Document available for download here: http://www.activeingredient.org/pdf/Everywhere%20is%20Here%20-%202009.pdf


This architectural animation explores the question of the role of the public library when digital information is everywhere and is everything. What happens to the spaces of books? and how should traditional spaces of information change for a digital world? Even better... in the developing world, how could the library nurture an information society, when people don't have access at home? Could the future of the library be an urban information bar? or a theatre of knowledge? and what does that really mean anyway?

 

This animation is just an introduction to my architectural masters thesis called EVERYWHERE IS HERE:

I will be blogging some random stuff at www.everywhereishere2009.blogspot.com
