Pop Up Books

When I was a bookworm-y kid, I would have chased this awesome pop-up bookmobile down the street like it was the Ice Cream Truck.
Built by a Dutch architect in response to that country's narrow roads, this tricked out tractor trailer is constructed of a storage container that rises to form a light-filled, glass-floored reading room above a children's library.
100 meters of books, four computer terminals, cool lighting, a fun-house floor and bean bag chairs? Sweet.
