Library Pay Phone Booth in New York City by John Locke

Seeing how the popularity of mobile phones continues to grow, the need for pay phones continues to diminish. New York based architect John Locke had an idea that would help make your standard pay phone booth a bit more practical and multi functional.

As part of the Locke’s ‘Department of Urban Betterment’ interventionist project, the architect has transformed New York City pay phones into mini libraries for public use. Locke attached a vibrant orange shelf to the pay phone, and the mini library was formed. The shelving unit is constructed of plywood milled by Kontraptionist. Named the ‘Dub 002′ this mini library is being stocked with books donated by local New York residents. (via DesignTaxi)
