Open Air Library (in Germany)

Check out the Magdeburg’s Open Air Library made from over 1000 beer cartons and incorporating parts of the facade from the city of Hamm’s demolished Horten warehouse (and with the help of designer  Karo Architekten) It’s both a cultural center and a “pop-up library” where books (which were gathered by residents and donated) are free to take and leave 24 hours a day. The grassy plaza area has a “reading cafe and a stage that hosts elementary school theater plays, public readings, concerts, and other cultural events.”
