The project is based on the concept of a stone monolith as storage of the most important cultural knowledge and historical heritage. It is the primary nucleus that symbolizes Korean nation’s basic values, the sarcophagus where both local and the whole world literature is preserved. Here the main collection is kept with the help of automated system. It answers visitors’ questions and distributes books through the portals placed at each level of the library. So, readers can observe the life of the storage from the side, see thousands of books and mechanical hands cautiously transferring them from the cell and giving them to readers or placing them back.
