Perforated sunlight filters in from the 6,000 round windows of this massive library in Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan. On any day, bookworms weave through the labyrinth of free-standing shelves to pore over a selection of 400,000 books. The structure is simple, a white rectangular block, but it’s in the simple repetitions that the public library stuns its visitors. The straightforward structure is stripped from excess, a tranquil atmosphere enveloping the room as people dive into other worlds between the pages found within.
