Experience Everlasting Light in this Seashore Library, The World's Loneliest

The moment you walk in, you will feel moved by something.

Check out this visit to the Seashore Library at Nandaihe Pleasure City, China, a 5000-foot ocean-side structure inspired by an Andrew Wyeth painting and designed by Gong Dong at Vector Architects.

If this reading room is considered the auditorium, then the sea is the ongoing play. This metaphor is the underlying theme of this space...Light creates atmosphere, and we hope to reveal the completeness of light in the space of this building.
The state of life we hope to achieve is that anyone staying on the seashore has a space where they can feel their relationship with the sea, while holding a book.
