WCSA - Top 100 Largest Libraries In The World - P14.Kanazawa Umimirai Library – Kanazawa, Japan.


(Wcsa.world-indochinakings.org) The Kanazawa Umimirai Library building, which was completed in 2011, is enclosed by a white “punching wall.” The wall is replete with 6,000 little holes that let in a soothing light and is also designed to help distribute seismic force in case of earthquakes. Floor heating and cooling has been incorporated for the public’s comfort, while the roof’s openings provide natural aeration to help make it more pleasant in the summertime. The awesome-looking structure was honored with the Chubu Architecture Award in 2012.

Kanazawa Umimirai Library is a public library located in Kanazawa city, Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan. This is a contemporary building by the Japanese architects Kazumi Kudo and Hiroshi Horiba, completed in 2011. Its surface creates a decorative grid made of some 6000 small circular blocks of glass which puncture the concrete surface of the building in a triangular array.

The firm that designed the library, Coelacanth K&H, describe the building as a "simple space" of 45m by 45m and 12m high. It was completed in March 2011. The floor area is 5,641.9 square metres; the building's area is 2,311.9 square metres. The "single quiet and tranquil room ... resembles a forest, filled with soft light and a feeling of openness reminiscent of the outdoors"
