Library | Beijing | China


Allocated next to a lake and surrounded by a theater and shopping mall, the proposed design of the library creates a new landmark in the natural environment of the site. Creating new view points and a visual axis to its neighboring buildings, the cubic shape of the building is formed by solid and transparent building materials driven by the qualities of the urban setting. The concept study enabled the client to envision a new form of interaction between the building and its site expressed by its geometry.
