When embarking on the design of the Tainan Municipal Library, our team's initial focus was on exploring the essence and purpose of a library in today's information-rich world.
The site is located at the intersection of the blue (canal) and green (HaiAn Street) systems and serves as a key connector
This project is situated in Huoshan County, along the renowned foothills of the Dabie Mountains, which is a picturesque location known for its excellent water quality and abundant production of traditional Chinese medicinal herbs, particularly shihu.
Acting courses are a crucial component of primary and secondary school education. The on-campus theater, which serves as a venue for student performances, should be an engaging and stimulating space that allows students to express themselves.
Throughout history, humans have sought a sense of support and connection with the surrounding space to feel secure. In traditional landscape paintings, people often leaned against tree trunks to read books
The library plays a crucial role in fostering students' independent learning and love for reading. In our design, we aimed to break away from the traditional rigid layout and serious atmosphere, and instead create a learning environment that caters to the diverse needs of individual students and offers limitless possibilities for growth and exploration.
For middle school students eager to expand their knowledge, reading serves as a means of connecting with the world. The wealth of information contained in books unlocks the windows to children's hearts, stimulating their boundless curiosity about the world and inspiring them to pursue the unknown.
In today's world, where information is readily available everywhere, the library's role has transcended that of a traditional book repository. With our design proposal, we aim to redefine the library space as a social hub for information sharing and community engagement.
