The Seashore Library by Beijing-based Vector Architects is located along the seashore of Bohai Bay, roughly three hours from Beijing. The design is unconventional in that the library has no paved path to the entrance and is accessible from the beach or from a running trail that passes nearby. According to the architects, the design key point of the library is “focused on exploring the co-existing relationship of the space boundary, the movement of the human body, the shifting light ambience, and the air ventilating through and the ocean view.” The library houses a reading area, meditation space, activity room, drinking bar and a resting area. Each space was meant to establish a distinctive relationship with the ocean by defining how light and wind enters into each room.nKdEghUcdEo Seashore Library by Vector Architects Design
