De Batavier outdoor library

This library of 250 ceramic books in the facade of De Batavier was created by Sanja Medić, an artist resident in Amsterdam. It was commissioned by the housing organisation De Alliantie and HVDN Architects in the process of developing a new residential building in Lootsstraat in Amsterdam.
The streets in this neighbourhood in Oud West are named after the Dutch poets and writers, and the titles on the spines of the books are taken from the works of these same authors.


  1. Extremely cool, where is this? I've never come across this...

  2. I changed the post to include the location: the building can be found in Lootsstraat in the Oud West neighbourhood. Of Amsterdam, that is.
