The Book Stop

November 2019

The inspired design of the Book Stop creatively approaches a global issue of limited resources for public access to great literature. With an adaptable and cost-effective execution the mobile meditative reading space provides opportunities in many locations especially those that are underdeveloped. This will ultimately refresh the importance of the sharing of knowledge through literature in a more playful and hands-on way.
