Children’s Library in Mexico Features Bookshelves that Double as Climbing Structures

by , 11/09/13

Anagrama describes the purposeful use of the bookshelves beyond storage, offering as an alternative, a dynamic space to play and learn, to fire the imagination and provide comfort while reading. The angular landscape of the design mimics Monterrey’s well-known and admired topography, providing a unique jungle gym for active play and adventure that’s a refreshing offering in a library environment that typically lends itself to the utmost refinement.

Housed in an industrial warehouse, the library brilliantly reflects the geometric intricacies of its antique surroundings while offering modern lines among its neon rafters and flooring.

    Very imaginative and attractive. However, I do wonder how good they are for actually holding the books without deforming them. I think the spines would twist, and face-out displays might not be very successful. There’s no place for signs telling you what’s where. And obviously, gone are the days of sitting and peacefully getting lost in a a story book. So – possibly rather too gimmicky. Still, it should bring the kids in, but I think they might soon return to Kids Zone where they can get burgers and fizzy drinks too.
