With donations from a Kickstarter campaign, the artist Wafaa Bilal has collected over 1600 books for the library of the College of Fine Arts at the University of Baghdad. The students are thrilled to get these treasured books in their hands. However, the university is not equipped to receive the large amount of books, nor is there a suitable space where the students can read and study.

We have developed a practical yet affordable design from locally accessible building materials that will both house the books and provide a communal reading space for the students.
