The Future Library is a project made for a sci-fi movie. It can be likened to a time capsule that will be opened in a 100 years from now. Yet every year leading up to 2114 will see an original piece of work from a notable author, which will make accessing the Future Library even more exciting for readers.
Conceived by Scottish artist Katie Paterson, the Future Library takes the form of a custom-built room within Norway’s new Oslo Public Library. To complement the Future Library project, Paterson is planting 1,000 trees in Nordmarka, outside Oslo. Remaining a secret, "when the trust, managed by Paterson’s successors, will publish each text on paper made from the new forest," reports Fast Co Design. Margaret Atwood is one of the participating authors.
