Summary
Commissioned to build a public facility that combined a library and art gallery in 1995, Toyo Ito finally completed his new concept of architecture, the Multimedia Library of Sendai, in 2001. With his 50m by 50m glass cube, Ito proposed a transparent cube through which thin floor plates float suspended on organic-looking seaweed-like "tubes" that reinforce the "immateriality" and the lightness of the building. Ito expanded his mandate for a barrier-free, multifunctional building to create a fluid space for using state-of-the-art media
