The AIU Library is the university’s 24 hour learning center, open 365 days a year. The library’s unique concept of its “Book Colosseum” creates a space where students can tackle books. Coined the “Circular Play System,” this spatial environment was developed from years of research to inspire students’ learning motivation. The library’s Semi-circular terraced shelves and reading spaces provides a pleasurable spatial atmosphere to search for books. And the generous use of local cedar timbers aims to send a message to the world of AIU as a locally rooted university.
