Outdoor Library in Ghent
Amazing find by Christopher Jobson - Chicagoan, and creator of one of the best blogs on the internet, Colossal.
The outdoor library entitled Bookyard was built by Italian artist Massimo Bartolini for the Belgian art festival TRACK: A Contemporary City Conversation in Ghent. Visitors are invited to peruse the stacks and are free to take any book they find for a small donation at a designated box.
This is a lovely, and innovative take on the traditional library.
