Geweldig mooi: Liyuan Library
Wat een rust straalt deze tegelijkertijd stilistische en organische bibliotheek in de nabijheid van Peking uit.
positioned within the small village of huairou, a two hours drive away from the urban center of beijing, china, the ‘liyuan library’ by chinese practice li xiaodong atelier is encompassed within a mountainous and forested landscape. a five minute stroll fromthe village’s center, the fully glazed interior contains quiet and contemplative reading spaces and a series of platformswhich integrate shelving for books. after analyzing the region’s characteristics, an exterior screen clad with ordinary sticks was chosen to conceal the glass facade, receding into the surrounding nature without competing with it.
