Artist Uses 100,000 Banned Books To Build A Full-Size Parthenon At Historic Nazi Book Burning Site

Further cool fact that the linked article doesn’t mention: the books will be given away to visitors at the end of the installation, so this is not only displaying works that were banned, but also spreading them among a new audience.

This is amazing! It brings to mind the Great Worlds Colombian Exposition, otherwise known as the Chicago World’s Fair of 1893. They built an entire city, gave the modern era so many innovations, and yet they never built a palace out of books. Absolute genius.
