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.

The main function of the library is to provide space for students’ read-ing 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 en-vironment for kids.
