A design for a Bookrossing Hub in Farringdon, London. Bookcrossing is the practice of leaving books in public places for strangers to pick up and read. The building aimed tap into the transport hub that Farringdon will become once Cross-Rail is complete, and encourage the practice of bookcrossing on the tubes and trains. The design also proposed studios to be used for book-binding.

The concept for the building was deirived from the idea of wedging books into unlikely places.

The 1:20 model was created for the Bartlett Summer Show 2007 with help from Katie Fudge, Jason Claxton, Tim Yue, and Yuwei Chang.
