Bookshelf Building

Bookshelf Building

Creative parking garage of the Kansas City Public Library looks like a giant bookshelf filled with classic books.

The building was designed by Dimensional Innovations. Local residents selected the titles of the books that are displayed on the bookshelf.

    I wish they would have made the books thicknesses more proportional. I guess I’m being a hypercritical engineer though. Great project!

    They’re awesome. I like books very much.
    If those book covers’ colors have faded in the future; would they paint over a NEW book title?
    Or same OLD book title?
