Cultural Center Area, YuDong New Area, DaTong, ShanXi Province
The design concept of DaTong Library is from the YunGang Grottoes, one of the three most famous ancient Buddhist sculptural sites of China. Datong library will become an exciting building with reproducing the Grottoes space either from its inside and also from its outside. While continuing the distant context from Wu Zhou Mountain, its incomparable sense of sculpture presents its unique character as embracing modern life and serving common people. The silent YunGang Grottoes, continuous archaic Chinese rhymes, a new imposing library, treasure of knowledge. It passes down the Chinese traditional culture and raises the curtain of culture exchange between China and foreign countries, the library will stay with the ancient YunGang Grottoes in harmony.
