book mark, magdeburg
the lesezeichen – bookmark – in magdeburg-salbe is an open-air library that serves equally as a place for events and hanging out and as a noise protection wall against the heavily trafficked local through road. books are available for borrowing in open display cases, they can be taken out without a library card and put back once they’ve been read. seating niches offer an invitation to stay a while. the structuring wall is clad on the inside with larch wood and, on the outside, is built out of recycled aluminium bus-shelter elements. this library is pointing the way, thus creating a centre within salbe.
