Mind-Blowing Building Built From Thousands of Books

 

We’ve covered Matej Kren’s amazing feats of book-stacking before, and now his largest book installation to date is on display in Italy at the Museum of Modern Art in Bologna (MAMbo). The piece, entitled “Scanner,” is a gigantic tunnel of books that is meant to inspire reflection, impose greatness, and confuse perspective. Decked out with mirrors and thousands of books, “Scanner” is a new read on how we experience place.
