Tower of Babel books

Ephemeral work of art created by Marta Minujín. The Tower of Babel will be built with books of different languages ​​who will then form a multilingual library. The tower structure is a helical structure of 7 stories high covered with 30,000 books in different languages ​​and dialects that reminds us of the mythical Tower of Babel of more than 4000 years.

Shelf Conscious

The Guardian has launched a Flickr group to showcase readers' bookshelves.
Are you pedantic when it comes to arranging your books? Do you sit them on your shelf in order of height, colour or age? By genre? In the order you bought them? Do you place novels side by side only if you think the characters in them would get along in real life? Whatever your scheme and the reasons for it, we want to know.

Modular Paint Chip Bookshelf

Considering the general form of a bookshelf the similarities to the common paint chip became obvious. Actual names of paints were used when naming the colors but were selected to create somewhat of a narrative. While the overall form is simple the details are the virtue of this piece. Designed to be easily movable the bookshelf breaks apart into easily stackable units. This makes it easy to move the shelf to a new location without having to unpack everything. It also allows the user to decide how tall the shelf is to suit their preference. A unique double-opposed half-lap joint locks the units perfectly into place and maintains the straightness of the vertical elements.

This unique shelf system in each individual shelf has uncertain quadrilateral shape; the cutting technique is very unique along with the way to connect all the pieces into one bigger scale piece that is a brutal process.
