Designer Chat Travieso’s 'Word Play' installation displays the word “Library” in English, Spanish, and Chinese, depending on where the viewer is.

Brooklyn-based artist and architectural designer Chat Travieso‘s creation ‘Word Play' is a little free library with layered wood pieces resembling the vertical patterns produced by books on shelves. It displays the word “Library” in English, Spanish, or Chinese, depending on where a person views it from.

This is useful for the diverse community where it is located on the Lower East Side. Designboom reports that the Architectural League of New York partnered with Pen World Voices Festival and Two Bridges Neighborhood Council to bring the library to the area.
