A vibrant canopy of recycled book covers in the QUT library
Peddle Thorp and James Cubitt Architects engaged the Urban Art Projects (UAP) to construct and install a decorative roof treatment for the Queensland University of Technology Library upgrade.
The design team developed a concept using the covers of old library books to adorn the ceiling. UAP then built and installed the coloured canopy of book covers set within a mirror frame. The result is an infinite covering of multi coloured upturned books drawn from the university collection.
