The Shanghai Children’s Library is more than a building. It is designed as a tool that contributes to the progress of childhood development from dependency, to increased autonomy, to independent individuality. Located in the Children’s Library Park, the 16,000-square-metre library is organized by function into five complementary areas that each comprise an enclosed space to ensure functional clarity and a connection to the airy atrium to facilitate open, collaborative learning.
