Not to be confused with the motor-home that Justin Bieber rides in, the BiebBus is a Dutch idea that provides a library on wheels for schools that can't afford or have no space for one.

While using reclaimed containers for other purposes isn't new, what makes this idea clever is how the container doubles in size once it arrives at its destination. As Andrew Michler explains in this inhabitat article:

The BiebBus can pull in, pop up, and let kids participate in a parable or two. The design is also a lot of fun -- with a transparent floor, cool lights, and huge portals for kids to see out, the BiebBus makes kids excited to grab a book, kick back, and explore the written word.
