“Books are the nutrient of the whole world. A life without books is like a life without sunlight; wisdom without books is like a wingless bird.”
This saying belongs to one of the most renowned playwright in the history of English Literature: William Shakespeare. The Chang Jung Christian University Library encourages all students to read to enrich themselves with this famous saying.
The designer uses the wall, designed with creative intent, as its creative base. The light symbolizes wisdom, shining through the girl shown reading and symbolizing the birds flying in the sky of knowledge. This means through the absorption of knowledge, the gate of wisdom and the window of spirituality opens upon us.
The large window adjacent to the wall allows a substantial amount of light to pour into the reading areas; thus, the use of acrylic is implemented to stage a clear, transparent feel. The translucent acrylic is like an undisturbed mind, supported by a light grey background establishing the peaceful atmosphere of an ideal reading space.
Books are the nutrient of the whole world. A life without books islike a life without sunlight; wisdom without books is like awingless bird. 書籍是全人類的營養品。生活裡沒有書籍，就好像沒有陽光；智慧裡沒有書籍，就好像鳥兒沒有翅膀。相傳這句名言正是出自於英國文學史上最傑出的劇作家─威廉•莎士比亞( WilliamShakespeare)，圖書館藉由這句流傳已久的名言，勉勵同學以閱讀充實自我，增加涵養。
