circular windows

Kanazawa is the historical town sits on Japan sea in the middle part of mainland, and I spent 4 years there for art school.

One hot summer day, I visited a new library near Kanazawa called Umi-Mirai Library. The architecture was very interesting, simple square shape covered with many small circular windows.

Inside of the building was spacious, and much brighter than I thought. I don't know much about the engineering, but I only can see tall narrow pillars. Holed walls may be a major part of the structure like an exoskeleton.
