We want to visit here as this is one of the Toyo Ito’s latest work. It’s amazing when step in. It’s contemporary and yet many Japanese element are adopted. People in Gifu should be proud and happy to own such nice place.

岐阜市の図書館をベースとした建物であるものの、とても図書館とは思えないほどの先進的で、様々な催し物や活動ブースが取り揃えられている施設です。ベースである図書館は建物中央のガラス張りのスペースに区切られています。その周囲がいわば多目的スペースとなっており、様々な催し物は勿論、体験コーナーとしても活用できるスタジオや、スターバックスなどの飲食スペースもあり、市民だけでなく観光客が利用しても非常に興味深いスペースとなっています。木目調の開放的なスペースであることも、来訪者が落ち着いて施設を利用できるポイントとなっていると思います。 駅からやや遠いことと、図書館以外のスペースがオープンスペースとなっているため、そのスペースで自習などをする場合は、子供の声に集中力を乱されることが難点かもしれません。施設内はとても広いですので、まずはぐるっと探検して、自分なりの利用しやすさを探求するのもいいかもしれません。 Although the facility is based on the library in Gifu City, it is advanced not to be able to think that the exterior and interior of the building are library! The existing library is located in the center of the facility and it...More

The First thing that hits your nostrils once the automatic door opens...the " sweet" aromatic smell of wood. I'm not sure if it's Japanese " hinoki" wood or " Sakura"(Cherry blossoms) either way, the smell is really relaxing, though my 8 yr old son only...More
