The University Town Library

The University Town Library provides a new perspective on sharing resources: the library serves three university campuses spread on either side of a canal. The building itself acts as a bridge linking these previously disconnected facilities.

Students, staff, and the wider community are free to pass through and over the building to make this connection. Its 480m long undulating form mirrors the topography of the landscape while its dragon-like shape, contemporary materials and function aim to reflect the erudite language of education.

Glazed façades encourage views out to the surroundings while providing layers of sun-shading for reducing heat gain on library spaces within. The library was designed to hold 1.5 million books, 3,000 seats, 1,700 data ports and 8,000 visitors daily and sits on a 51,600 m² site in the city of Shenzhen.
