Future Library

Future Library – Katie Paterson

Post written by Fiona Hillary

Future Library is a public artwork by Scottish artist Katie Paterson, which will unfold over the next 100 years in the city of Oslo, Norway.

A thousand trees have been planted in Normarka, a forest just outside Oslo. It will be 100 years before the trees are cut down to provide the paper for an anthology of books – a Future Library for the city of Oslo – read for the first time in 2114.
