It’s all done with mirrors

The Louis I. Kahn Facsimile Project evokes the architect’s fascination with layers and crevasses and depth. The same could be said for the Dujiangyan Zhongshuge Bookstore in Chengdu by X+Living. Both links evoke Umberto Eco’s mighty library, the intellectual heart of The Name of the Rose. Try this paper on The Monastic, Labyrinthine Library and a comparison of its illustration in the book and the movie for a dive into the library’s Piranesian depths, production designed by the great Dante Ferretti (at Digital Architecture Papers) / The Great Indoors, a quarantine art project by James Tralie / ‘Edward Brooke-Hitching set out to curate the ultimate collection of bizarre books down the ages. He leads us around The Madman’s Library‘, a new book from Simon and Schuster / a monograph of images from along ‘the inaccessible and unknown banks of Oslo´s longest river, the Alna’ by photographer Bjørnar Øvrebø, published by Kerber Verlag / Architects love a moonbase, part 1: SEArch+, NASA, ICON and the BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group announce Project Olympus / down to earth, with the Lost London Flickr pool and the London Old and New pool of comparison pictures.
