Library Lust

I came across this Kanazawa Umimirai Libray in Japan, designed by Japan based Kazumi Kudo and Hiroshi Horiba of Coelacanth K&H Architects, and had to share. Maybe it's ultimately my love of polka dots that first attracts me to this project, but as playful as it is, the spaces are also sophisticated and really quite elegant. 

Translucent glass fills each of the 6000 holes, diffusing natural light into each of the spaces which creates a sense of emotional or almost spiritual richness. Take a look...
