项目坐落于加利福尼亚长滩市(Long Beach)市中心,由SOM事务所操刀,项目旨在为市民提供一个宜人、灵活的阅读环境。如今,图书馆日接待游客过千,相比于传统的图书馆,它更像是一个充满活力的社区中心。独特的木结构采用了最先进的技术,使建筑从周边环境中脱颖而出,同时最大限度地利用了建筑面积,创造出开敞通透的室内空间,从而提高了图书馆的运作效率,为使用者创造了便利。此外,BILLIE JEAN KING主图书馆还为人们提供了丰富的活动项目,其中阅读与浏览书架只是全部体验中的一小部分。图书馆入口处设有一个开放的天井庭院,穿过庭院便可进入两层通高的室内中庭。

The new Billie Jean King Main Library is more than a traditional library of decades past. Positioned at the heart of Downtown Long Beach, it is designed to provide a welcoming and flexible environment that now serves more than 1,000 daily visitors. The state-of-the-art, structural timber building features distinct and identifiable interior spaces that maximize square footage and enhance user accessibility and staff efficiency. It also offers a rich program of activities in which reading and browsing through bookstacks are only a small part of the experience.

中庭顶部的高窗将柔和的自然光线引入室内,为室内营造出通透明亮的空间氛围。开阔的中庭宛如一个大型展厅,在这里,人们的视野不会受到任何阻隔。温暖的照明光线弥漫在相邻的阅览室,工作室和书库中,这些空间与中庭一起为人们提供了一个安静舒适的理想阅读环境。此外,根据一天内各时段活动内容的不同,中庭空间还可以作为容纳研讨会,社交聚会,展览以及其他公共活动的场所使用。

After passing through a dramatic two-story light well that opens to the sky, visitors are welcomed into a large central atrium—topped with a generous clerestory—that provides the interiors with an enhanced sense of porosity and abundant natural light. The space feels like an expansive pavilion, with extensive sightlines throughout and soft illumination permeating the adjacent reading rooms, studios, and book-stacks. It also transforms over the course of a day, accommodating workshops, social gatherings, exhibits, and public events.

为了吸引社区内部人群,图书馆设有完备的便利设施,例如家庭学习中心,儿童阅览室,退伍军人资源中心以及带有独立出入口的多功能室。此外,图书馆还为人们提供了配备有电影编辑、3D打印以及机器人研发工具的创客空间。图书馆共有两个楼层,除了活动与服务空间外,其余区域布满书架,收藏了超过30万册图书,其中还包括被市长罗伯特·加西亚(Robert Garcia)誉为“南加州最大的漫画与绘本收藏”,游客们可以漫步在书架间,细细浏览慢慢品读,享受舒适悠闲的阅读时光。

To lure the community inside, the library features a variety of amenity spaces, such as a family learning center, children’s reading room, veterans’ resource center, and multipurpose rooms with their own separate entrances; the building also houses makerspaces with capabilities for film editing, 3-D printing, and robotics. On top of all that, visitors can peruse two-floors of shelves that hold more than 300,000 books, including what Mayor Robert Garcia called “one of the largest comics and graphic novel collections in Southern California.”

儿童文学区以及特殊收藏区设在一层,位于中庭旁边。特殊收藏区是一个可调节温度的封闭房间,这里存放着图书馆的特殊藏品,包括15世纪的稀有文献,以及丰富的美术书籍选集等等。二层则设有电脑区,安静阅读器,专门的青少年阅读区以及创客空间,此外,沿着建筑表面通高的玻璃幕墙一侧,还设有休息区,在这里,周边的城市景观以及附近林肯公园的优美自然景观都将一览无余。

Just off the atrium’s main level are the children’s literature area and an enclosed, temperature-controlled room that houses the library’s special collections, which consists of rare texts dating back to the 15th century, a rich selection of fine arts volumes, and more. Computers, quiet reading areas, a dedicated teen zone, and makerspaces are available for use on the second floor, as well as lounge seating along the perimeter’s full height glazing that offers occupants unobstructed views of the adjoining Lincoln Park and surrounding neighborhood.

为了致敬当地以发球和截击力量而闻名的著名运动员Billie Jean King,图书馆以她的名字命名,宏伟而独特的木制框架结构以及丰富的室内活动空间迎接着社区人们的到来。BILLIE JEAN KING主图书馆如同长滩市的灯塔,散发出迷人的魅力。

With an expansive wood-framed “porch” that greets the community, a diverse set of interior spaces and activities, and a name that pays homage to the local native and famed athlete known for the power of her serves and volleys, the Billie Jean King Main Library is an inviting beacon for the City of Long Beach.
