Entry Description

Together with the Cultural Bureau and the existing Performing Arts Center, the Hsinchu Municipal Library forms a new cultural plaza. The site plan aims to connect the old city moat green belt to the green park continuing northeast. The traditional library programs are closer to the ground while an elevated "cloud " volume symbolizes the future of knowledge exchange. Programs within the “cloud” include reading room, special collection, exhibition, café, and auditorium. The twist of the cloud provides ramp access to the rooftop terrace above the library overlooking the city.
