In McAllen, Texas, MS&R Architecture turned an old Wal-Mart into a public library -converting a space the size of two football fields into “the country’s largest single-story library.” The inspiring project shows how the boxy architecture of these stadium-sized stores can be converted into a more civic-minded space.

Attention All Bookworms! You Need This Awesome Piece Of Furniture In Your Life Now: The Long – Form – Library
The concept – design an environment in which to read and contemplate. Equally crucial – be incredibly modern in aesthetic. The library moves. The underside is curved, allowing steady rocking, controlled by the occupant, as you would an old rocking chair. Each of the 15 box units are bolted back to back, the largest fitting through any domestic aperture. Assembly takes around two hours. Oh, and no, the library will not roll over. No matter how hard you try! Enjoy.
Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto has come up with a unique design for a house in Tokyo, Japan. Made up almost completely of transparent glass, the house is made up of 21 ‘platforms’, each of which can serve as a working, resting, sleeping or living space. Based around the concept of a ‘tree’, each platform is linked to each other by movable or fixed stairs and ladders, making it seem like an enormous loft.
“The intriguing point of a tree is that these places are not hermetically isolated but are connected to one another in its unique relativity. To hear one’s voice from across and above, hopping over to another branch, a discussion taking place across branches by members from separate branches. These are some of the moments of richness encountered through such spatially dense living,” says Sou Fujimoto.
‘Bufalino’ by german industrial designer cornelius comanns is a small camper which is equipped to meet the basic needs of one person. the concept behind the project is to offer absolute flexibility during periods of travel. the minimalist construction is based on the existing piaggio APE 50 three wheeled light transport vehicle; a model chosen for its economic and fuel efficient benefits. however, the more complex structural components such as the frame, the chassis, and engine are derived from the original piaggio model.
