Hubei Foreign Language Bookstore

Hubei Foreign Language Bookstore was once a cultural symbol. This design aims to re-establish a cultural and memory relationship with Wuhan people.

The designers created a light cone that runs from the roof to the first floor. It allows the changes in weather and time to permeate all corners of the bookstore with the pouring light. It is a landscape that symbolises knowledge, and even represents human emotion. Planting areas of different sizes on each floorrun through and forming a green dark line to echo the bright light cone.


This project has been longlisted in the large retail interior category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
