Rotating Bookcases

rotating bookcases

I'm relieved that I'm now fully absorbed in my university project. As part of the Language Centre that I'm designing, there will be a library. I found these images of a library in Brussels which incorporates rotating bookstacks. I'd like to apply the concept of rotating bookstacks and other furniture to my design, to give the option of one large open space or several closed-off private areas. I've reached the fun part of my project and it's quite exciting!

I love ready your design blogs.
I actually found your site while trying to find my old uni blog. which was also called cubic something. The only problem is I can't remember what the something was. Thankfully for that because I found your site.
Anyway I am now a follower of your blog and I have found a great shirt to turn into a skirt when I get some time. I'll make sure to like it back to you when I upload the pictures.
