Multi-purpose cultural centre made with steel tubular lattice structures. The building appears light by day, and also at night when the structure glows artifically from within. The Sendai Mediatheque contains a library, art gallery, audio-visual library, film studio, and cafe.
Michael Webb in AR 1256 states that Toyo Ito "thought of the enclosed space as liquid, likened the columns to strands of seaweed drifting through an aquarium....a concept that was as audacious as the Pompidou Centre".
