The project is located in Lixia District of Jinan, Shandong Province, surrounded by cultural, educational and creative commercial resources. As one of the eight venues of the cultural and archives center, the library occupies the 2nd to 4th floors on the southwest side of the center. In order to provide residents of different ages with an emerging library model with a diversified human scale, we have built the library into a shared space. As a very iconic urban cultural building, we hope to create a center that gathers local residents. The library provides a place for residents to develop a good reading habit, and facilitates them to carry out various social, cultural, entertainment, and sports activities, and builds sharing community.
