A new public library to be built in Tarumi City, Kobe. In addition to the design of the library we have also proposed a redesign of the urban transport network including a rotary on the ground floor and underground bike parking. The library is designed to become a node in the city of Tarumi, with an open rooftop park that overlooks the sea. Learning from the integrated use of the nearby station square, we are planning a space for books and people to actively be in the city, as a library for a new era of urban life. Designed in collaboration with FUJIWALABO, Tato Architects and tomito architecture.
