The Renovation of Ankang Library Building by United Units Architects

Home > Winners > #108403


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The Renovation of Ankang Library

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Building

INSPIRATION:
The new Ankang Library adopts a modern curtain wall system, forming a concise massing and pure colour. The transparent glazing combined with the delicate perforated aluminum cladding create an effect akin to a halo. When the two buildings are seen with the vibrant and disordered old city, the following strong contrast brings unexpected drama and contrast. Forty years of passed time are visible with these two urban realms, like a surreal space-time dislocation.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The original Ankang Library was opened in 1984, and it’s facilities had fallen behind the information age before the renovation. The design principle aim was to rejuvenate the old library into a new, open and welcoming community space, highlighting and creating a strong contrast with its existing context. Since opening, the new library has reactivated the cultural life of the local community, and the number of daily visitors has increased from 10 people to 3,000 people.
