The aim of the proposed 38,000 sqm library was to unite the urban aspects of the city with its surrounding natural character. The library responds to its surroundings by facing famous Shou Mountain and Kaohsiung harbor to the northwest, and also connecting the multi-level public spaces to the green belt of Sin Guang Boulevard.

The public spaces of the library consist of an amphitheater plaza, a bookstore along the promenade and a roof top garden. The structural facade of the main library not only derives from the indigenous bamboo baskets but also represents the industrial engineering know how of the city.
