The New City Main Library project is the inaugural stage of the “Regenerating Sangmu Incinerator” initiative. The library is set in Sangmu district, Gwangju Metropolitan City, characterized by extensive housing complexes, commercial establishments, and governmental offices. The project reimagines the Sangmu incinerator site, preserving the factory building, demolishing administrative and welfare structures, and relocating heat supply facilities. The proposal combines a public library with community sports amenities, aiming to establish a cultural and innovative landmark that redefines the library’s role in modern society and explores the synergy between digital media and traditional resources for advancing culture.
