The architecture of the Jiangnan Bookstore is designed to resemble a sage with his eyes open. This innovative skylight design allows an abundance of natural light to flood the interior spaces. The bookstore aims to combine traditional reading experiences with coffee culture and creative events and become a new cultural landmark in Jiading.

These new additions are part of Jiading's initiative to create the Yuanxiang Lake Culture Loop. When completed, the loop will consist of 10 architectural miniatures and will be complemented by the existing Jiading Library and Shanghai Poly Grand Theater. This leisure space will offer a diverse range of cultural activities and attractions.
