Photographer Anna Ladd’s poignant series, Things I Told the Internet, But Didn’t Tell My Mom, examines the way that blogging has impacted her life. The Philadelphia-based artist has been sharing her thoughts and feelings via this medium for the past six years, and it’s changed her conception of privacy. Intimate and revealing admissions are made to seemingly countless anonymous people on the web, but has never been talked about in person.
What a cake pan library collection looks like.
Do they have donut pans?
Of course with those cake pans, you gotta have an oven. Check out these library kitchens: http://lj.libraryjournal.com/2014/06/buildings/lbd/and-the-kitchen-sink-library-by-design/
Oh if only home economics let us store cake tins!
Book Mountain - Spijkenisse, The Netherlands
MVRDV designed this unique building near Rotterdam with 9,300 square meters of glass, stairs, and reading material culminating into a wide open reading space at the top, to challenge the intimidating stuffiness of libraries of old.
Featuring a huge glass and timber outer shell, this astounding library is a tiered, five-story structure similar to a pyramid, with books stacked on shelves that wind around brick walls. Quite the spectacle at night, and filled with natural light during the day, the building was meant to symbolize accessibilty to literature and learning. Its beacon-like design and naturally flowing open spaces house over 70,000 books, and the building runs on a graywater system and the racks are made of recycled KLP plastics.
Book Mountain won the Dutch National Wood award in 2012, and is a public library.
