This library is located in Kanazawa, Japan, and is most likely intended as a multi-funtion community center. The concept is to design an ‘atmosphere’ for reading. This library consists of a single quiet room which resembles a forest, filled with soft light, and a feeling of openness reminiscent of the outdoors.
