Abstract

Through analyzing the projects of eco-libraries in China and abroad, this paper explores ecological strategies for university library design by taking the library design of Weifang Science and Technology College as an example. The strategies include building layout, modular interior design, double-roof, atrium air flow, overhead space of ground floor design, etc. What’s important is that the study uses some software to test the energy efficiency of the double-roof, and to simulate the operations of passive shading and ventilation to choose the most effective shading and ventilation installations. This paper also does some research on place construction and community creation. It’s hoped that these results and design approach will provide examples for the university library design in China.
