Repurposing Gives Literal Meaning To Library Information Desk

Hello.  Welcome to the Delft University of Technology Library. I am the Information Desk and I am full of it.  How can I help you?

Architecture students at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands made the perfect pun whilst repurposing some of the university's old books... and Information Desk. Well, it is full of information...

Well, for now, I guess someone does have to actually provide the information required to negotiate the library.

This design really does make one think about how we all can repurpose old books, especially old school books that are constantly being updated leaving no market for those you have.  A desk, chair, or even a book case might make some fun DIY projects for dorm rooms, dens, or even offices.  And you can pool your resources.

Might take some heavy-duty paper cement...
