THE BOOK COLOSSEUM
Akita International University Nakajima Library| 国際教養大学 中嶋記念図書館

This magnificent university library designed by Mitsuru Senda is open to serve its students 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and is held together with bare wood beams and columns made of local cedar, forming what resembles a large umbrella. With rows of bookshelves in the stadium seats, watching over the students and their desks situated in the arena, the building is conceptually referred to as a “book colosseum”.
