The Book Tower

The idea of our design is to build a tower consisting of columns and mezzanines of books, using strong joints that can give us the stability and support a lot of weight, in this case, books, which are accommodated in a simple way so that they can be taken out from the tower easily. The structural idea is to build a ‘book bridge’ between two vertical structures.

One side of the tower is covered by a screen of books, held together using the friction of interlocking pages, also creating an illusion of ‘floating books’.
