The Story Pod: An Unfolding, Open-Air Library

(Photo: AKB)

The architecture firm Atelier Kastelic Buffey (AKB) developed the Story Pod--a free, lending library that sits in a park in Newmarket, Ontario. During the day, it opens and unfolds into an array of shelves and benches. Exposed and covered areas let visitors select the right amount of shade for reading. 

At night, the Story Pod is closed and locked, fitting neatly into 8 by 8 by 10 foot space. Lights, powered by solar panels on the roof, provide illumination to nighttime visitors to the park.

It's such an inviting design!
