The practice’s new library for the City of Dalian is designed to become the center and heart for the local community with a strong relationship to the ocean and the bay. The 50m building is placed in a park setting and aims to be a landmark for locals and visitors and a symbol for the creative and environmentally friendly future of New Pulian.

It is a place for the public to read, contemplate and come together. The basic architectural form for the 50,000 ㎡library is the rose petal since the Monthly Rose is the city flower of Dalian. The Pulian branch is one of several library branches in the Dalian region with each branch symbolizing a petal and forming a rose flower.
