the architectural league of new york has partnered with pen world voices festival to bring the little free library to downtown. stereotank,
founded by venezuelan architects marcelo ertorteguy and sara valente, designed the installation at st. patrick’s old cathedral school in nolita.
the concept creates an ‘inhabitable’ environment, where users can immerse themselves into the space, taking the time to browse through
books and borrow or exchange them. the structure is built out of an inversed plastic tank and a wooden frame. perforations around the
volume allows visitors to peek inside and preview the interior configuration, which can be accessed by ducking under the yellow structure.
