The design emphasizes the original ecology of the overall campus and environment on the basis of respecting the original campus planning concept. Through the design of the library’s regional expression, form combination, and space construction, it conforms to the topography and builds on the lake to build a campus space environment that integrates architecture, landscape, and lake surface. The design of the library retains the original ecological natural scenery, making the campus space of Jiangxi college of construction a whole, ecological, open, and energetic learning space.
The façade presents a slender, multi-layered vertical elevation effect, and the constructive façade approach is also an expression of the internal structural system. The structural logic hidden inside the building is naturally transferred to the linear components of the facade, becoming a ‘visible’ order.
With a powerful architectural feature, the courtyard and gray space serve as a transitional connection between the building and the environment, which not only enriches the facade, but also closely connects the building’s indoor space with the outdoor environment. By superimposing and combining the geometric shapes of the building, a complete and atmospheric architectural form is presented.
The design of the library hopes to provide a sunny and poetic place for learning and communication for the students in the school. The design of the large gradient steps by the lake provides a place for students to sit and contemplate, and it also makes a quiet and orderly atmosphere that extends from indoor to outdoor.
