Bee Breeders has partnered with ARCHHIVE BOOKS to organize a competition for portable reading rooms that could be easily assembled and disassembled in cities around the world. The intent of the project is to construct a modular book-sharing structure, to promote reading and establish community spaces with free access to printed literature - accessible libraries for adults and children alike. The competition is part of Bee Breeders small-scale architecture appreciation movement.
ARCHHIVE BOOKS is a new print publication series intended to connect architects, startups, investors, entrepreneurs, and both for- and non-profit organizations engaged in various ways of solving topical issues, such as the global affordable housing crisis. With its forthcoming volumes, it hopes to build a new type of community for sharing ideas.
The portable reading room project is one of many projects by Bee Breeders meant to bring together and implement design ideas from around the world. A simple but important space, the portable reading room is also meant to make architecture ideas more accessible. Winners of this design competition were chosen based on their ability to be implemented, and also for their innovative thinking.
Bee Breeders and ARCHHIVE BOOKS would like to thank all participants for their submissions.
