By creating the scenery and using the technique of architecture, designer presents visitors with an elegant and powerful artistic landscape.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:

Moving forward, visitors will reach the reading space where bookshelves extend from the space to the adjacent columns, catching the curiosity of readers and guide their route. In the literature area where it seems like the beautiful scenery of Dujiangyan dam is vividly presented in the space. Walking upstairs, the bookshelves beside the stairs offers a variety of books at accessible distance, visitors could grab a book and have a read on the second floor where various seats are provided.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The design is heavily inspired by the local famous landscape. Therefore, we decided to move the spirit of local mountains and rivers into the indoor space. We not only aim to present visitors with an abstract and artistic landscape, but also hope visitors can be touched by the spiritual expression once they walk into the space.

CHALLENGE:
The difficulty of the project for our team involves how to translate the local landscape elements of Dujiangyan into bookstore through design language that can create an amazing customer experience, and at the same time guarantees the practical functionality that the bookstore requires.
