Woman and man, rich or poor are all welcome to the library. It is a socially inclusive heterotopias space in modern cities. In a way, a “library” is the “house” for the collectives. Library is a place for thoughts. As it concerns with theclassification of knowledge, library is also a critical program to a civilization.

We attempt to reinvent the program of library by breaking down the separation between reading and storage areas. By having the two spaces intertwined, an abstract field of knowledge is formed, one could easily move from the perception space to the projection space. There is a direct connectionbetween the pattern of circulation and the trajectory of one’s thought about knowledge. The act of circulation becomes an act ofcreation.Cross-connections between different knowledge are spontaneous, and inter-disciplinary studies are encouraged. Critical thoughts are latent in this matrix of knowledge.

We base our formal transformation on the architectonic of a “vertical folded-plate.”As we designate the solids to be the structure and storage, the voidsin-between are collective space for reading and gatherings.
