This cast-concrete library sits on a stretch of deserted beach facing the East China Sea and features a tiered reading hall, a meditation space, activity room, and bar topped by a curving ceiling.
Not much can be asked from a library. Silence appears second-nature in a space where serenity and zen is embedded in the environment. According to the architects, when walking into the space, one starts to feel the light, breezes, and sound of the ocean. In there, everyone can slow down the usual pace, and unfold the feeling of distance and loneliness different from the city life. It’s officially a dream.
