Entry Description

The library is the largest public space as a central hall in the Jinjiang Campus of Fuzhou University. The entire campus plan was inspired by the "Red Brick Cuo Village" preserved from Ming Dynasty, which is constructed in a unique way with white stone embedded in red brick wall. Our strategy is to create vertical and horizontal flowing space into nature, and integrate the local materials and traditional crafts into the new building in the original urban context. The traditional techniques adapt to the local coastal climate environment and reduced the operating cost of air conditioning.
