In the Newmarket area of Toronto, architecture studio AKB has constructed something incredible. It’s the first structure of its kind, and is sure to delight bookworms everywhere. Introducing … the Story Pod.
When the Story Pod is closed, it doesn’t look like anything more than a hunk of metal.
Even a bird’s eye view doesn’t provide any clues about what it is or what could be inside.
But when the walls begin to open …
It’s clear that there is nothing boring or usual about it. The Story Pod is an open-air book exchange, with walls meant to imitate the open pages of a book.
Anyone is invited to take a book, leave a book or simply sit down and read for a while.
At night, the Story Pod seals to protect the books and seating inside …
And an LED lighting system switches on, turning the Story Pod into the best nightlight ever for the surrounding park and path. That’s a whole lot of brilliance in one pod!
