Minna-No-Mori Gifu Media Cosmos by Toyo Ito 1

2013 Pritzker Prize–winning architect Toyo Ito presented the first floor plan of the ‘Minna-No-Mori Gifu Media Cosmos’, a cultural center.

This Japanese project by Toyo Ito, utilizes natural energy and materials, changes traditional building geometries and creates differentiations between places. The cultural center’s main program is a contemporary library characterized by roof funnels made by curved, three-dimensional polyester shades that define reading, resting and study zones.
