Toyo Ito Sendai Mediatheque

Edited by Ron Witte

Toyo Ito is one of the foremost architects working today. His architecture makes innovative use of steel and aluminum and includes such paradigm- shifting buildings as the White U House and the Eggs of Winds in Tokyo. This volume focuses on his Mediathèque in Sendai. This newly completed structure, which houses a library, art gallery, cinema, lecture theater, and cybercafé, is predicated on the idea that the users of the building occupy a media/ information landscape or “digital ecology. ”Through a series of extraordinary technical advances— floors supported by a system of occupiable hollow tubes and sophisticated information and media networks— the building creates an environment in which people can engage in cultural activities both internally (within the structure) and externally (through digital connections to the world at large).

This volume investigates the evolution of the structure through a series of essays by experts on media, architectural technology, and digital culture.
