Building with Books: IAP 2004: MIT

Don Saklad sent in a link to Building with Books, a class @MIT.
"We will be designing and constructing furniture from disused books. If you are interested in finding new uses for discarded materials, or if you need a new piece of cool furniture, please join us. Projects may include chairs, shelves, tables, hammocks, walls, sculpture, and more. We will be working in a wood shop to find new ways to use books as structural or sculptural materials. The project is interdisciplinary and we are looking for creative uses for old reading material. Participants and organizers include engineers, architects, artists and more."

Looks like this already happened, but...

...I'd be interested to see what was constructed. Hope they post some photos of their creations!

Newspeak?

From Web site: "Thanks to ... for their donations of disused materials." Um, "disused materials?"
