Open air library from beer crates

The eastern German town of Magdeburg has a new open air library designed by Karo Architekten in collaboration with local residents. It has two unusual features: books can be freely accessed 24 hours a day and can be exchanged rather than borrowed; and structurally, the original assemblage of 1000 beer crates has been replaced by recycled custom cast blocks.
