Microlibrary — Taman Bima

The microlibrary at Taman Bima is the first realised prototype of a series of small libraries that the architects intend to build in different areas throughout Indonesia. Their mission is to rekindle interest in books by offering a dedicated place for reading and learning, availability of books, other media and courses. The library helps to do that aside from adding a sense of identity and pride for the community.
