High by the Beach: Seashore Library by Vector Architects
On the shore of an idyllic white sandy beach in Beidaihe New District, a coastal region in eastern China, rests a monolithic yet classical structure that contains sublime spaces of aesthetic illumination. The Seashore Library, designed by the Beijing-based studio Vector Architects in 2015, portrays the endless interaction between the manmade and the natural where light, wind and the sound of the ocean enter uninterrupted into the building’s spaces to accentuate its austere lines.
