The population and urban density of this hyper-city along the eastern side of the Pearl River Estuary is still booming, even after 40 years of rapid development.

Fengdong E Pang Bookstore / Gonverge Interior Design

October 16, 2019 Collin Chen 0

Xi’an, the ancient capital of 13 dynasties, features the integration between a civilization of thousands of years and modern lifestyles, which gives the city unique charm. The project E Pang Bookstore is located in Fengdong New Town, Xixian New Area, Xi’an, which is named for the Epang Palace nearby. Fengdong, where the project is situated, used to be the administrative center of Qin Dynasty, and nowadays has become a core area in the development blueprint of Xi’an. Since there had been no large-scale reading space within 5 km away from the site, the project was conceived to fill the blank. The designers tried to figure out what kind of bookstore was needed based on local cultural context and geographic importance of the site.

In architecture, “Joints” is a word carries much weight. A “big” construction is composed of many “small” joints. The big construction is shown in small details. To be more specific, the forms and structures of joints will decide the final shape of a construction; and the quality of these joints will define the quality of the construction.

The effect has proven transformative, elevating the once underused, ill-equipped space from an empty expanse, to a vibrant hub.
