To combat declining literacy rates in Indonesia, plans are to build several micro-libraries. The first was recently completed using 2000 recycled ice cream buckets. The buckets on the façade let light in, provide natural ventilation, and kept costs down. The pattern of the containers form a binary code. Translated it means “books are the windows to the world”.
