The result of Tainan Public Library, one of the most imposing international competitions of the year, was announced in early February.

Extracting from a poetic scene, “Reading through the past under the eave; let the historical glory lights up the mind.”, the design aims to reconnect with the unique history, culture, and geographical elements of Tainan.

By integrating stream, field, and traditional courtyard house into the design, the library revives glory from the past.

JJP stood out from a list of international and local applicants and was honorably received the 5th placed in the design competition.
