Kaohsiung Library Competition Proposal/ Mak Architects Inc

Mak Architects has submitted their proposal for the Kaohsiung Library Competition. The 38,000 sqm library, which will become the region’s main library, placed third in the competition.

The library responds to its surroundings by facing famous Shou Mountain and Kaohsiung harbor to the northwest, and also connecting the multi-level public spaces to the green belt of Sin Guang Boulevard. The public spaces of the library consist of an amphitheater plaza, a bookstore along the promenade and a roof top garden. The structural facade of the main library not only derives from the indigenous bamboo baskets but also represents the industrial engineering know how of the city.
