At the heart of the Kadokawa Culture Museum is a huge library containing 50,000 books. However, this place is not only for readers….

It is the Japanese architect Kengo Kuma who designed this gigantic place which corresponds more to a cultural gathering space than a collection of traditional books. Just a few months after its opening, the famous granite building in Tokyo has already hosted several shows with these grandiose book theaters as a backdrop.
