Music and Theatrical Events in Colossal Library of Kadokawa Culture Museum

This is not just a library but a cultural gathering space in the heart of the Kadokawa Culture Museum. Photos taken by Ryosuke Kosuge perfectly capture the enormous library from the inside and the entire Museum from the outside as well as the forest next to it that is also a part of great manifestations. Designed by architect Kengo Kuma, more than 50,000 books are held on these uniquely positioned wooden shelves. Located in Tokorozawa Sakura Town, the museum had already hosted many events, both musical and theatrical. The library’s metal walkways and colossal shelves are a perfect backdrop, while the forest next to the museum becomes candy-colored magic-land with a help of projection mapping technology and embedded screens.
