Shanghai Library East, a new civic landmark and cultural destination in the world’s third most populous city, is now open to the public.

Inspired by Taihu stones, or ancient Chinese scholars’ rocks, Shanghai Library East emphasizes creativity, collaboration, and public art. More than 80% of the building’s space is dedicated to community activity. The new 115,000 m² library is located in Pudong District – the area known for its iconic skyline and sits immediately next to Century Park –the largest park in the city spread over 140 hectares.
