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.
