Shenzhen Science & Technology Library/University Town Library of Shenzhen 深圳市科技图书馆/深圳大学城图书馆
As the first library with the dual function of being both a public library and an academic library, the Shenzhen Library of Science and Technology is shared by the graduate schools of four universities: Peking University, Tsinghua University, Harbin Institute of Technology and Nankai University, and is open for use by local residents as well. Its mission, “All for the people, for all the people,” aims to serve the local students and faculty members, corporate researchers and knowledge-seeking residents.
Located at the heart of the campus, the Shenzhen Library of Science and Technology (also called the University Town Library), possesses the beauty of the crouching tiger and hidden dragon.
As the first library to combine the academia with the public, the University Town Library was designed to have a holding capacity of 1.5 million volumes, 3,000 seats, 1,700 data ports, and 8,000 visitors expected daily.
The library's interior design along with its architecture gives the building a feel of elegance. Grey and white mixed with orange create a vibrant theme. Spaciousness is applied on all floors, each of which has the same height and support beam distance and payload, making each level an advantageous site for patrons and the library's future expansion. It is a library where people enjoy reading and studying quietly and in peace.
