as Children's Education
This research is based on the author's anxiety about the behavior of indonesian people towards the use of single-use plastics to eventually cause a buildup of plastic waste. Damage to natural disasters often occurs due to the buildup of plastic waste, until finally the public realizes the importance of environmentally friendly education and recycling from an early age. Educating the community, especially children, about environmental friendliness can be started through adequate educational facilities. In this context, this study took the example of the design of The Bima Microlibrary located on Jalan Bima Utara Bandung City.
