Book Cell : A Building Made From Books

To create an artistic architecture, you don’t need to have the most eye-catching first hand material or disposable art pieces just to build your structure. The Book Cell is a clear example of eco-architecture. Built entirely with books, the Book Cell is a building originally built in 2006 by artist Matej Kren. With the growth for mobile book reading facilities today, the traditional resource books that we have are obviously being left behind. Instead of having them destined to our landfills, using them in an art work such as the Book Cell, we can drastically minimize the growth of landfills and eventually help save the environment.
