I can’t believe I didn’t know about the Kansas City Library parking garage. I went to Kansas once for a baseball game in college and I don’t think I’ve been back. WOW. How unbelievably inspired. Here’s information about the design from collabcubed.
“Though the Kansas City Library Parking Garage in Kansas City, Missouri was completed in 2004, I had never seen it before. Designed by cdfm2 architects (now apparently 360 Architects), the book spines measure approximately 9 meters by 3 meters and are made of signboard mylar. The shelf showcases 22 titles reflecting a wide variety of reading interests suggested by Kansas City readers and then selected by The Kansas City Public Library Board of Trustees. Clever.”
Here is another site I found information too:
