Departure from the Restrictions of Modern Architecture

Art Plaza (Former Oita Prefectural Library)

Oita Prefectural Library is the most important pre-1970 work by Arata Isozaki, who after 1970 became Japan’s most influential architect. The building’s impressive spaces invite various interpretations and were formed to serve more than one function. As originally conceived, this building signaled a departure from the dogmatism of modern architecture; later, it signaled a departure from the dogmatic view that modern buildings should be demolished when no longer fulfilling their original functions.
