Heyuan New Library
The Heyuan New Library is located in the centre of the Heyuan Cultural Park in Guangdong Province, China. The architectural design is unique in that it is inspired by traditional architecture of the Hakka people, one of the largest cultural groups in China. This location is ideal from a Feng-Shui point of view. The library overlooks the central lake from the foot of a small mountain, with the main façade facing the open water landscape.
Statement of the jury
The design unites traditional architecture and the principles of feng shui in a high-quality structure to create an iconic building with an impressive presence.
