02Library Like a Cake Box

The design concept of our library is a cake box full of surprises. The three-story building looks as though it is encased in a white box (45 square meters, 19 meters high). Kazumi Kudo and Hiroshi Horiba, Coelacanth K&H Architects, designed this building. The architectural design of the library was selected as one of the “World’s 20 Most Stunning Libraries” by Fodor’s Travel in US. The library is the center of attention worldwide and has won various architectural awards at home and abroad.
