Vineyard Library

Summer is the time for pop-up libraries. I love how they help us re-envisage what a library can be, how they play with architecture and space, and how fun they always are.

Here’s a wonderful one from last summer created by Massimo Bartolini for Project TRACK (you can read more about it here: http://track.be)

Set in the vineyard at St Peter’s Abbey in the city of Ghent, Bartolini’s library mimics a vineyard; the shelves reminiscent of the vines themselves. As with any pop-up library, visitors could borrow a book, buy a book, or exchange one.

Hopefully, they provided some wine as well!
