Since the merge of Tainan County and Tainan City, the current Tainan Municipal Library is no longer satisfying the needs of the local population, thus necessitating the new Tainan Public Library, which will be constructed at the site of the old Yongkang Artillery School. The site, at 15,000 square meters, will house about 35,000 square meters of floor space.
The library design will need to accommodate at least 600,000 books, 1,000 magazines, a compact storage of 400,000 volumes, a public service space, and a management and operations area.
Submissions are due January 21, 2016, and will be reviewed throughout January and February. Learn more about the competition here.
