Wow. Students at the prestigious Musashino Art University (Musabi) are in for a treat. The just got a gorgeous new library designed by Sou Fujimoto. The massive 2-story library is made entirely of timber shelving, which is covered by planes of glass. Even the hallways emerge from apertures cut-out of the shelving.

Bookshelves that actually dictate the form of the library is, in some ways, a library distilled down to its most basic essence. Lovely!

Fancy library or not, students will still fall asleep in them! ↑↑
