东德新建了一个露天图书馆，令人难以置信的是，它竟是东德居民用1,000 个空啤酒纸箱齐心协力建造的。该项目由Karo Architekten设计，并与当地居民合作完成，德国通过建立文化中心和图书馆这样的基层项目来振兴Magdeburg的后工业地区。该图书馆全天24 小时免费借阅图书，于今年6 月开放，该项目引进了大量的绿色空间，并且它漂亮的外观是利用一个旧仓库的拆迁材料制作的。
图书馆在周围社区的支持和配合下建立起来的。先用啤酒纸箱制作出了一个1:1 的模型，之后在Karo Architekten的帮助下完成了工程：将Hamm城中拆迁的Horten仓库的建筑材料进行循环利用。在项目的设计和建设期间，图书馆也获得了许多图书捐赠。现在，你可以在任何时候随心借阅这些图书——选一本好书，享受畅游书海的乐趣吧！

What began as an assemblage of 1,000 empty beer cartons pulled together by residents in East Germany has now evolved into an incredible open air public library. Designed by Karo Architekten in collaboration with local residents, the grassroots project revitalizes a post-industrial district in Magdeburg, Germany by creating a cultural center and pop-up library where books are free to take and leave 24 hours a day. Opened this past June, the project introduces plenty of green space and reuses the facade of an old warehouse to beautiful effect.
Libraries and book lending are a great green practices insofar as they encourage the use of shared resources and cut down on crates of pressed tree pulp circulating the globe. They’re even better when they foster a communal spirit of sharing, as does Magdeburg’s new Open Air Library.
The library was built from the ground up with the support and interaction of the surrounding community – first as a 1:1 model made from beer cartons and later as a finished project with the help of Karo Architekten, who incorporated parts of the facade from the city of Hamm’s demolished Horten warehouse. During its entire planning and construction period the library accepted book donations, which are now available to borrow any time of day without a membership – simply walk up to a cubby and pull out a tome.
In addition to its book lending facilities the Open Air Library also introduces a burst of green public space to a post-industrial district. The grassy plaza features a reading cafe and a stage that hosts elementary school theater plays, public readings, concerts, and other cultural events.
