Schmidt Hammer Lassen to design Shanghai Library

Schmidt Hammer Lassen to design Shanghai Library

Architects Schmidt Hammer Lassen will design the new city library for Shanghai, China after winning an international competition.

The 110,000sq m library, located in the Pudong District, will sit immediately next to Century Park - the largest park in the city.

The project is conceived as a singular monolithic object floating above the tree canopy within the park. The main library volume floats above two pavilions that will house a 1,200 seat performance venue, exhibition and events space and a dedicated children’s library, that will all open up towards a series of landscaped courtyards and gardens.

The library is organised around a grand central atrium in the form of three staggered reading rooms that open up and connect to various parts of the library and city.

The project is now progressing through scheme design, with detail design expected to be completed in the first half of 2017. The library is expected to be completed and ready to open in 2020.
