'The Mobile Library Project' is an educational initiative that aims to make reading more accessible in Seoul. Although Seoul is known for its technological innovations, one organization is trying to offer a more conventional appraoch to learning.

The Mobile Library Project was launched by the studio Spacetong (Archiworkshop) with the goal of making reading more accessible. The initiative involves setting up a number of pop-up libraries throughout the city. Each library boasts a unique design that ranges from glass-paneled retreats to colorful caged boxes. At each location, patrons can browse through a curated selection of books and choose the titles that interest them.

The initiative not only makes reading more accessible, but the buildings themselves add a touch of culture to different parts of the city.
