I read this today and had to share: a proposed plan to build a library out of discarded 727 and 737 fuselages! The drawings look very far out! The fuselage, it turns out, is the only part of a decommissioned airplane that can’t be recycled.
“The fuselage becomes the basic module of this building. It is insulated and furnished according to the program. The internal subdivision generated by the existing floor joists is used to respond to functional needs: the upper section is used for inhabitation while the lower one houses independent and interconnected mechanical systems: HVAC, electrical, cabling, and a conveyor belts network for the mechanical distribution of the books.”
