ClientOTEMON GAKUIN UNIVERSITY

In an era of improving internet technology, we designed the campus to let students experience the excitement of learning and revitalizes the local community. The campus is open to the community, with a central plaza designed for a range of encounters and experiences surrounded by the studios. A library above the plaza, forming an interior space that is lively. The corridors surrounding the library are equipped with books and desks to encourage student’s activity. University that create conversation through the energy and lively voices inside will continue to have lasting appeal in the future.
