The Pay Phone Bookshelf (Please Don't Call It a Library)
Superman, Grab a Book. (The New York Times, 9/8/2012)
Excerpts: Last winter, Mr. Locke designed a lightweight set of bookshelves to fit inside the common Titan brand of New York City pay phone kiosks. A fabricator in Brooklyn cuts the shelves, which Mr. Locke paints and assembles in his apartment.
The project is currently being featured in Spontaneous Interventions, the United States’ contribution to the International Venice Architecture Biennale, an architecture show.
