Toronto company creates a stunning mobile library
Plenty of areas are home to grassroots, Free Little Libraries that let neighbours share books with one another. But one Toronto-based architectural firm has taken these temporary, mobile libraries to the next level.
While it's locked up at night, solar panels power LED lights, enabling it to glow like a "lantern, providing ambience for night markets or community events," explains AKB on its website.
This was a one-time project commissioned by the Town of Newmarket, says architect Aaron Finbow via email. He and his team worked on it pro bono and aimed to create a public gathering space in the town's Riverwalk Commons, or downtown, area.
According to the Toronto Star, the Story Pod was accessible until October and it'll return come spring.
