B7_#074 // The Library // Anthony Ani
The idea of a library brings to mind an endless wall of books – usually relating to an educational institution. However, the beauty of a library is that it is not bound by location or function.
Our awareness of the presence of a wall of books has the ability to change our perceptions of the spaces we inhabit and transform them into functional reading spaces – no matter how informal the space. For example, a children’s play space which cognitively transforms into a reading space, as soon as the children become aware of the shelves of books inserted into it.
