TAIPEI (Tawan News) — The new main building for the Taoyuan City Library, constructed as a green building with the central theme of “the tree of life,” will be inaugurated for a trial operation on Oct. 29.

Business Today reported that the library was jointly designed by Taiwan’s T.C.K. Architect Engineer Planner and Japan’s Azusa Sekkei Co. Ltd. The latter not only has abundant experience in public library design but was also one of the main design teams for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics stadium.

The new main library, which is eight stories tall and includes two underground levels, hopes to become a hub that connects travel and leisure, arts and culture, as well as collection and research. The building is expected to house businesses including a Tsutaya Bookstore, a Starbucks, and Ambassador Theatres, and with a collection of over a million books, it will become the biggest library in Taiwan.
