8. The BookboXX

A Sustainable Street Library

Kutt, Konrad


Like the sun, books are a renewable resource and come with next to no cost of energy. The BookboXX project engages trainees from different professions, bringing books to a larger segment of society and involving society in a new understanding of sustainability. The BookboXX speaks to citizens of every age by offering a deeper sense of place, an interdisciplinary and creative outlet, free resources and in some cases the role of memorialising very difficult times as well as challenging situations. Receiving international recognition, the BookboXX project represents the splendour and simplicity of human potential.
