French architect Matali Crasset creates pop-up library for summer

Crasset has found the perfect solution for those who forgot their beach reading material with a temporary library which can be found on La Romaniquette beach in Istres, France, until September.

The compact library’s tarpaulin-covered steel frame structure features shaded alcoves around the outside so that beachgoers can relax with one of the approximately 350 titles on offer on the inside.

The interior of the ‘library’ creates a more intimate atmosphere for readers to browse privately or seek advice on reading material.

The open project represents a new genre of beach-side kiosk, casually promoting books and reading in public.
