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 the library block, we analyze and reconstruct the original situation to find pointcuts. After clarifying the overall optimization direction, through the analysis of the functions and structure of the traditional library, the functions and streamlines’ relationships among them were reorganized and constructed. At the same time, in response to the theme of "sharing" and the trend of the era, we started from people's perception and experience, optimized the sight relationship in the space, placed space nodes, added functional spaces, reorganized people's social behavior, and promoted the realization of "shared knowledge".
