The Kadokawa Culture Center (角川武蔵野ミュージアム) in Tokorozawa, Saitama, is a multipurpose museum building designed by Kengo Kuma (famed for his Japan National Stadium the host venue of the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo). It features the permanent outdoor art installation "Resonating Life in the Acorn Forest" by TeamLab as well as a double-height 8-meter tall library housing fifty thousand plus volumes which can morph into a 'bookshelf theatre' via projection mapping. The museum structure is a monolith, the facade of which is clad in 20,000 plus granite pieces fitted to the multiple shifts within its obtuse shape. Kuma has said of the building's design that "It represents the Earth's energy that breaks through the ground".
