Taiwan: Design library reopens in a former bathhouse

(2 Jul 2020) Taiwan Design Research Institute (TDRI) reopened its design library at a new location, previously used as a bathhouse, Wednesday (1 Jul 2020).

“Not Just Library,” the name of the library, has a collection of over 20,000 design-themed books and more than 100 periodicals, according to the state-backed institute.

Maintaining interior details from the Japanese colonial period, the façade of the semi-circular bathtub, the “Bathhouse,” represents a vessel that holds different ideas and thoughts, indicating the library’s potential to develop into a diverse immersive experience in the future, the TDRI said.
