With Arc Booktower project at Victora & Albert Museum, Rintala Eggertsson architects wanted to offer information of the biodiversity on our planet. Lined with the existing pillars, a free-standing wooden structure was placed in staircase hall corner, this bookshelf/library offered visitors a chance to choose an interesting book and withdraw to a peaceful space in centre of the tower. All of the books used in this project are second-hand (saved from destruction), view more images after the jump:
