This facility has been planned as a symbol of Oguchi town vision, the “lifelong learning” society.
The 5 basic concepts of this project are;
1) flexibility to diversify educational policy
2) openness to the community
3) preparedness to the information society
5) safety, care and people-friendliness
The façade of this building is exposed concrete with wooden louvers, and an inner courtyard creates an open space through its glass dome roof. Timber is lavishly used for its interior, which creates a warm atmosphere.
