Library of Prefectural University of Hiroshima

The Library News ||  This is a university library standing on a highway. The drum-like appearance is eye-catching.

The striking feature of this structure is, of course, its round shape. The round library reminds you of the British Museum Reading Room, which aimed at making a space of intelligence surrounded by books 360 degrees around. On the contrary, you do not see books from the center of this library. The round shape seems to have been chosen to alleviate a sense of pressure which could have been caused by having a large building on small premises.

Another feature is let the braces seen as they are. These braces are made of combined 5.5 ton PC units for respective floors.

This is a four storied building. The reading room and book shelves are on the 2nd to 4th floor.

  1. Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog
    platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.

    I would be fantastic if you could point me in the
    direction of a good platform.

  2. Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing
    a blog post or vice-versa? My website goes over a
    lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from
    each other. If you are interested feel free to send me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!
