Book Stop São Paulo

Thema: What if bus shelters were also mini libraries? What if, while you waited for the bus, you could pick out a book, and take it with you on your way to work?
Beschreibung: Book Stop is working to install shelves stuffed with literary works at ten bus stops across São Paulo. The Book Stop is an example of a public improvement project enabled by crowd funding, where citizens interested in encouraging reading could donate as little or as much money as they wanted to. The goal is to encourage reading in Brazil, a habit which is not as popular or widespread as some would like. Another startling, but seemingly unrelated statistic, is that the average citizen of Sao Paulo spends an average of two and a half hours sitting in traffic every day. Book Stop works to alleviate two problems at once: improving the experience of sitting on a bus stuck in traffic while encouraging citizens to enjoy reading.
Ort: São Paulo, Brazil
