Built to improve literacy rates in Bima, Indonesia, this wonderful little library was constructed using recycled plastic boxes from a local ice cream manufacturer. Sponsored by the NGO Pocket for the Poor, the eco-friendly building makes use of natural cross ventilation to create a comfortable reading environment without air-conditioning. How cool is that.
