A Library With Funky Geometric Shelves That Invite You To Climb Them
If you think libraries are boring, stuffy places, you may want to check out this fun library in Conarte, Monterrey that has shelves that invite you to climb on.
Created by Monterrey-based branding agency Anagrama, it was designed to encourage children to read and learn. The library was commissioned by Nuevo León’s Regional Council for Culture and Art, and is located in Fundidora Park, a former steelworks and foundry-turned-complex that now houses gardens, museums, theme parks, convention centers, auditoriums, and cultural venues.
Anagrama took into consideration the library’s location in an old warehouse—like building and designing it to reflect the mountainous terrain of Monterrey. The geometric shelves act as storage areas for books and double up as play spaces, while the bookshelves are covered in carpeting for children to climb on. The entire area is decked out in bright colors to encourage imagination.
With a library this fun, reading won’t be a chore. View more photos of it below.
