The media of knowledge dissemination is no longer limited to books. Similarly, the "knowledge exchange" appeal of the library has become more complex, from P2B to P2P, giving the learning space the characteristic of social space. In this case, in addition to providing the basic function of searching information and self-study, we put the communication space in a significant position.
In terms of spatial layout, we spread out the communication activity area, open-shelf reading area and rest area layer by layer in a centricentric way around the atrium, and these spaces are defined by three different flooring and methods of daylight introducing.
