|Babel Tower hits Baires|
The 28-metre high structure, inaugurated earlier this week, is made of a steel spiral partially lined with a metal netting onto which 30 thousand books from 54 countries were attached. It will be up for a month.
The books are inside plastic bags. Not sure this should mean "Panic!" or "Don't Panic!". So, who you gonna call? Books or objects conservators?
There are contradictory reports about what will happen to the books afterwards. Some say members of the public will be allowed to help uninstall the structure by choosing a book they like. Others say the books will be donated to a library.
