Located in Tokyo, Japan, Tama Art University Library by Toyo Ito & Associates. Ito shares Mies van der Rohe’s fascination with the grid as a parametric and therefore boundless geometry. Toyo Ito seeks to distort and modulate it, to get what he calls an “emergent grid”. Using one of the oldest, most classical architectural staples – the arch – but associating it with a natural phenomenon – the stalactites – Toyo Ito adds a sense of ambiguity to an otherwise clear motif.
