Comprised of 30,000 books, Argentinian artist, Marta Minujin, created this public art piece as a tribute to the city of Buenos Aries which has been named as the World Book Capital of 2011 by UNESCO. The Tower of Babel can be climbed by sightseers until it is deconstructed. While climbing the tower, viewers hear music composed by Marta while also hearing various artists saying the word 'book' in different languages. This is a place where all languages come together as one.
And a big CONGRATULATIONS to the city of Yerevan, Armenian for being named the World Book Capital of 2012!!!!
