Paroles de Bib's insight:
pub pour les bibliothèques de Las Vegas : eh oui, il n'y a pas que des joueurs de machines à sous ou de roulette, il y a aussi des vrais gens qui y vivent et vont dans les bibliothèques (du moins on l'espère !)
Surabaya-based firm dpavilion architects have recently completed a colorful library in batu made from eight recycled shipping containers that cost eight million rps (820 USD) each. They are standardized modules suitable for a variety of uses, affordable, and they symbolically hold the books that will open the children's eyes to the very world the containers have travelled before ending up as a library and polyclinic. In the small cosmopolitan agricultural town, a clash between the contemporary city and the village clash ; where the gap between the rich and poor is increasingly widening, the project aims at leveling the playing field by providing an educational facility with over 6,000 books and a small clinic all for free, in an attempt to improve the quality of life for all the locals.
