This is design work for the academic library of an art university. The concept, ‘The Forest of Books’ by architect Sousuke Fujimoto, was implemented in the library. The result was a space where visitors are guided by numeric signs to the books they are looking for. The numbers of the signs represent the content of the classification: the number seven is made from the letters spelling ‘art’; and for the technology category, fives have been arranged like the cogwheels of a clock in order to represent the concept of technology.
