Read Ritual / new style of reading space

Read Ritual
Read Ritual

“Read Ritual” is a new type of reading space which integrates Confucius' central "ritual" with modern life culture. We keep the culture and ideas alive, and reinterpret reading and education.
In design details, we transform the octagonal Caisson of the Confucian Temple into the main decoration of the main space. Allow people to appreciate its craft structure and details from different angles. Also, translate the teaching interaction between Confucius and his disciples into a lecture hall. Furthermore, translate the salute and the form of bending over into looking up which fit the modern living culture.
