reading on the go

Books are often a problem for those on the move; they are heavy. Danish Architect David Garcia solves the problem with his Archive II circular library that lets the reader walk away with half a ton of books.

Archive I  "is a weight balance library,the readers chair is elevated in proportion to the amount of books in the shelves." They were exhibited at the Danish Art Academy in 2005.
David writes:
The average reader can read about 240 words per minute. A 300 page book normally takes 9 hours to read, non stop. I you read while you walk, you can read a book in about 43 kilometers. If you read and walk, watch out for traffic.
