Campus Library Design

The site is located at the lake side in a university. From the start of the basic function of library, it is divided into two parts: the solid and the void. They are mutual symmetrical so as to echo axis of the east and the west.

The solid part is the main building of spiral arisen form, and the void part is an entertainment space. The spiral element is meandering to the outdoor campus square, and it served as landscape responding to the building.

The bottom overhead construction, perforated plate skin and louvre inside adapt to the moist and torrid climate in Guangzhou. Meanwhile, it provides the reading experience as journey in the books for students on campus.
