Project Description

Construction was completed in early 2007 on this new university library project won by RMJM as part of a limited entry competition. The scheme is a new ‘gateway icon’ for the campus shared by the graduate schools of Peking University, Tsinghua University, Harbin Institute of Technology and Nankai University.

Taking into account the design concept of ‘unity and modernity’, the long, undulating form of the design echoes the gentle form of the surrounding hills whilst the contemporary materials reflect the erudite language of education and knowledge.

Under its wavy roof, the building integrates the requirements of the administration centre and the library elements needed by the four universities. It also acts as a public library for the local area.

The building is at the interface of the universities’ campuses and while the entrance plaza, bridge and roof garden provide a series of important public spaces for the entire campus, the structure itself will become a cutting edge landmark building.
