library design

An interesting project started by New York architect John Locke. What do you think?

“There are 13,659 payphones on NYC sidewalks, even though there are over 17 million cell phones. Is the pay phone an anachronism or an opportunity…” reads a poster graphic designed by New York architect John Locke. Locke is the architect behind the ‘Department of Urban Betterment,’ a New York-based interventionist project that is repurposing phone booths into communal libraries or book drops through the installation of hanging bookshelves milled from single sheets of plywood.
