BOOKS TO BRICKS

Sited in Wicker Park, Chicago, Books to Bricks seeks to give unwanted works of literature a new life through digitization and brick making. As books are brought to the facility through systematic ‘weeding’, the library itself expands allowing  increased space for social programming. Each brick produced would contain legible remnants of the books consumed to make them, creating a lasting memorial to paper literature throughout the structure of the library.
