Unique Properties

The purpose of Zhongshuge is to build the most beautiful bookstore in China.

The most distinctive karst landform of Guiyang was moved into the interior, which bringing readers a cave-like experience.

Production Technology

In terms of the cultural and creative corridor, where rows of stalactites down the ground against the black glass of the ground seem like infinitely extended waiting for readers to explore. On the book stand of ship type, chandeliers are shelved going along the water flow on the ground, which introduce readers through the treasures of knowledge. The cultural and creative area takes the conception of karst landform. The mountain-shaped bookshelves are intertwined and wind along the path.

Design Challenge

To create karst landform in this shopping mall, first of all, designers need to consider whether the height of the floor matches the actual environment. And when creating the cave environment, designers need to consider how to restore the real scene more vividly under the premise of ensuring the safety of readers.

Project Duration

The project is finished in October 2018 in Guiyang, China.

Operation Flow

Designers pay attention to the experiential needs of consumers and create a comfortable and mysterious reading environment for readers. The Guiyang Zhongshuge has become not only a bookstore, but also a comprehensive experience place integrating thinking, reading, leisure and chatting. Inspired by the environment, readers can explore the treasures of knowledge.

Research

With the impact of online shopping on traditional bookstores, designers are keenly aware of the growth of consumer experiential demand. By designing mysterious and fantastic bookstores with rich cultural connotations, readers are attracted to enter physical bookstores and the reading experience brought by physical bookstores.

Inspiration

The inspiration of Guiyang Zhongshuge comes from natural landscape of Guizhou, geographical features and original cultural, for example, the prototype of cultural and creative area is karst landform peculiar to Guizhou.
