Musashino Art University Museum & Library

Sou Fujimoto

Tokyo, Japan
Lined with towering bookshelf walls — whose empty shelves represent the library’s potential as a place to use and house books for years to come — an integrated cascading stair and series of stepped shelves serve as a connection between the two main levels and provide plenty of room for students to sit or recline as they read, sketch, or catch up on text messages and e-mail.
