We designed a “street-style” library with a focus on making it open to the city and its people. There are a number of sections along the “street-like” corridor in the center of the building that blend in with the dwellings in the city. This represented an attempt to connect the “street” in the library with the streets in the city of Moriyama.

The walls along the “street” are covered with panels made from cedar grown in this prefecture, making it feel like taking a walk in the woods where sunlight filters down from above, and you encounter books and people in the perfect place to learn new things.
