Madrid

2004-2005

Bibliometro are public-library-stands in Madrid metro stations in which passengers may borrow books and leave them back in any station. Bibliometro intends not only the traffic of culture across the subway of Madrid but also to make readable the journeys of milions of passengers every day. These small light pavilions are immersed in the circulation of passengers and its sinous shape adapts to its flow. They are built with translucent illuminated glass that permit books to be seen from the subway. From the outside passengers may use the screen where the books are displayed, the counter where they are lent and also the box where books are dropped off when they are read.
