Books as building - cool library

What a cool library. i would love to walk to work every day if it looked like this
clipped from deputy-dog.com

if you’ve ever wanted to feel like an ant, head to the library in either cardiff or kansas missouri: rather than using a traditional front to the building, both have decided to turn the premises into giant bookshelves, creating an extremely surreal experience for passers by.

cardiff public library

apparently this is only a temporary feature at cardiff library until the new building is completed. if it was up to me the place would stay like this permanently.

kansas city library

local residents were asked to nominate influential books that represent kansas city, humungous versions of the winning nominations were then used as the exterior of the library car-park.
