Master of sinology, Ji Xianlin, donated 200 thousands of his author's remuneration to the government after 5.12 earthquake 2008. And this triggered the approach of the project.
Main function of the library is to provide space for students’ reading and recreational classroom. The entrance hall is the memorial space of Master Ji.
By juxtaposing and stacking a series of cylinders with different scales, the library’s design gives birth to a free flow of the interior space and also commits to an interesting series of outdoor space. The active play and movement area of both indoor and outdoor guarantees a lively environment for kids.
The perforated metal sheet fully embraces the entire massing. It is not only created as a form, but also as an instrument to prevent diverting kid’s attention from their class. The moderate interior space emphasize a quality of reading space.
