Description   The Fukui Prefectural Library and Archives is located in the rural suburbs of Fukui City, surrounded by lush rice fields and adjacent to the Asuwa River, situated in a desirable natural setting. To take complete advantage of this environment, this building establishes a positive relationship with the surrounding setting. The open stack reading rooms are spread out across one floor, and most of them are enclosed by glass curtain walls, creating a visual connection between the inside and outside. The majority of reading areas are situated along the perimeter of this space, allowing visitors to enjoy the scenery during their breaks, viewing the gardens nearby, or gazing far out to the distant mountains.
