Top 100 Largest Libraries In The World - P48.Musashino Art University Museum & Library, Tokyo, Japan.


( Sou Fujimoto’s new library for the famous Musashino Art University in Tokyo, Japan, suggests that in the internet-age a library is just that: a library! All it needs are good lighting, good orientation, bookshelves, and nice reading areas. Fujimoto’s Musashino Art University Library has all these ingredients, and more.

With its 26,900 square feet of space, the Musashino Art University Library is by far Fujimoto’s biggest work.

The “Musashino Bijutsu Daigaku”, as Musashino Art University is known locally, traces its roots to the “Imperial Art School of Japan”, which was founded in 1929 at a time when the Japanese Empire still included large parts of Northeast Asia. It is still regarded as the leading art school in the country.

The wide staircase can also be used as an auditorium. Evenly filtered natural light from above enters the library through polycarbonate panels, creating cozy reading areas.
