Shiba Ryotaro Memorial Museum Library.jpg

Tadao Ando is a reknowned Japanese architect who built the stunning Shiba Ryotaro Memorial Museum in Osaka, Japan, to commemorate the spirit of the legendary writer Shiba Ryotaro who unfortunately passed away in 1996. It was built right next to Shiba’s home and encompasses a 11 meter high bookshelf, housing 20,000 of his book collections including manuscripts, paintings and videos showcasing his old days! Amazing eh?
