We design with such a relationship in mind that library, as a Big Living Room, exists in-between our everyday life. It should be a 24-hr meeting place for people to exchange ideas, information and knowledge via multiple kinds of media. To support this idea, the library is built up by a series of permeable frames of walls looping one another, which dissolve the whole building from inside to outside, and outside to inside. Multiple edges of walls create in-between spaces weaving people in and out. Different sizes of openings form a range of opacity for both physical and visual connection and separation. As a result, navigating "through" the walls, people can experience 3-dimensionally not only the library itself, but actually the whole context it situated in as part of their everyday life.
