Pritzker Prize laureate, Japanese architect Toyo Ito has designed a tree-like structural columns with integrated overhead natural skylight for the new College of Social Sciences at the National Taiwan University main campus. Perfectly displaying a careful use and manipulation of light and space. Ito’s interconnected spaces ensure a smooth navigation and vital communal spaces, for a community-orientated building. In a nod to the analog form of books, Ito intended to encourage encounters and interactions between students in the Library, where the exchange of knowledge and information remains key.
