1968 – Library Tokyo Keizai University – Azusa Kito

In 2014, the building was converted to an auditorium. Originally it was a library, designed by Azusa Kito in 1968. The library was organized as one large open space. The first floor has 40m x 40m square space with no columns and it is opening to forest through glasses. Unfortunately, the conversion of the building destroyed the clarity of its original architecture. Still remarkable are the polygonally shaped concrete columns. The building is registered by DoCoMoMo Japan as one of the 200 best representatives of modern architecture in Japan.
