During the earthquake last week this video was taken from the inside of the Sendai Mediatheque.  The interior is heavily damaged, however the structure appears to hold up quite well.

    The structures of Sendai Mediatheque are safe in the earthquake.

      No, it’s not. It’s an inheritance and testimony of the innovative spirit of Japanese people, and a document of humankind achievements.
