[多摩大学図書館・TAMAlibrary] Ito Toyo

11 07 2010

yesterday I went to see Toyo Ito’s Tama Library, inside the Campus of Tama University in Kanagawa. even though it was saturday you could see a lot of people on campus O.o as if they had nothing better to do on a weekend than to go again to uni…

you could appreciate the absolute care with which the minutest details were treated. the concrete was smooth as silk and where it joined the glass of the arching windowpanes both were at the same level, not a millimeter off! さすがに日本だな。

also, there were some guys sleeping like babies in a special resting lounge. they were so cute, lol.

HOW TO get there:

from Shinjuku take the Keio line to Hashimoto (橋本),  it costs about 430 yen.

once there you will have to take a bus to the campus. the buses are outside on the ground floor

taking the north exit of the station. I think the one taking you to the campus leaves from quay 6.

from the bus stop to the campus entrance is just a matter of three minutes walking and most likely

other students will be getting off with you, just follow them. 以上
