Kansas City Public Library, MO

The south wall of the library’s parking garage resembles a bookshelf that would dwarf anything lining the walls of the 50-Foot-Tall Woman’s house: each book is around 25 feet tall and nine feet wide. It was constructed as an homage to 22 favorite literary titles, chosen by patrons of the library (then, of course, approved by the board of trustees).
