Bookish Architecture from Matej Kren

September 16, 2010

How wonderful would it be to have a reading room made from books? Czech Artist Matej Kren creates ambitious structures using old books destined for the landfill. He’s been designing bookish sculptures since 1995, some of which are permanent installations housed in libraries. The outer fascades of many of the installations feature the foredges of the books, in lieu of the spines, which I think is nice as the paper pages have an organic feel. I would like to see something like this in person some day.
