Outline

This project is an attempt to revive the area around Muikamachi station and Minamiuonuma city as a whole through construction of a library. The city chose to place the library within a shopping centre in front of the station. One-third of the entire building was converted into the library and together with previous tenants the reconstructed complex now serves as an integrated facility of culture, healthcare and food. As a result, it not only serves as a library but by maximizing the convenient location and existing services it has been revived as a new place of regional communication.
