Due to the economic crisis many companies are forced to limit their expenses. In some cases that mean that they have to close some of their stores in some cities. Besides the lost working places the abandoned buildings look like ghosts after a while. That was what the officials in McAllen, Texas, were faced when their local Walmart shut down.
So, they decided that they weren’t going to let a perfectly good abandoned Walmart location go to waste. Rather than let nearly 2.5 football fields of space rot and decay, they decided to transform it into something useful and amazing.
Minneapolis-based architects Meyer, Scherer & Rockcastle, Ltd. breathed fresh life into the warehouse, about as big as twoand-a-half football fields, late last year, when they repurposed it as the country’s largest single-story public library.
This is an amazing initiative that will make at least the locals able to explore the fantastic world of books!
