With the aim of providing a hub for the local village community, the Microlibrary in Bandung, Indonesia is the first of a series of small-scale libraries designed by Netherlands-based firm Shau Architects. Comprising a small reading area and library, the facade is composed of recycled ice cream buckets that map out a coded message from the city’s mayor: ‘buku adalah jendela dunia’, which translates as ‘the book is a window to the world’.
