I believe I posted something about this project sometime in the last year. Now, there’s an entire book devoted to telling the story about how the L!brary Initiative in New York City has developed.
It’s a great project dedicated to the refurbishment of libraries in the New York City public school system. Pentagram teamed with various artists to make these spaces into inspirational works of art. Click the link and read some of the articles written about the project. Let’s hope there are more like it in the future, and across the country.
