Quality of place is not just about consuming...It's the real, authentic experiences and the jagged edges between neighbourhoods that create the energy that attracts the people who are today's economic drivers.
Biblio.Bato: Floating Library designed for Youth
JOHN loves this library! Not your usual 'run of the mill' kind of space, this library is a fusion of street culture and represents the evolving place character of the City of Bordeaux. Located on the upper deck of a moored ferry, its focus is on electronic music and digital arts and represents a new take on the traditional library model. As such its primary market is the 15-35 year olds who are attracted to the many video games, films, magazines and novels on offer. While the initiative is only temporary, its a simple and innovative way to attract youth back into educational spaces.
