鸟瞰夜景 © 严律己图书馆的造型意向来源于旋转叠放的纸张或书籍，逐层向上旋转倾斜的建筑形式与轻质遮阳铝板构成的横向立面线条赋予了图书馆独特的建筑造型。建筑底层面积被压缩，且平面轮廓与周边街道平行，在底层释放出更多步行空间与景观空间。建筑体量向上逐层旋转及外倾，使得上部楼层拥有朝向湖面和城市的更佳视野, 以及更宽敞的阅览空间。
The building’s shape creates a clear resemblance to a skewed stack of papers and books, and the skewed architectural form and the façade of light aluminum louvers are layered up to give the library aunique silhouette. Whereas the ground level with its minimal surface is square and runs parallel to the street, the upper stories expand outward and are rotated as to provide views of the surrounding landscape and more reading spaces with better view.

According to the different use requirements of the public space and the storage, the building is formed with two parts, which are connected to each other in the podium and the upper floors. The closed façade of the storage is designed with horizontally lined wood grained fair-face concrete that overlaps with the public area enclosed by the transparent glass façade.The intelligent storage with closed façade is located on the north, while the reading room with a transparent façade is located on the south, opened to the city view. The six floors above ground are all in height of 5.7 meters.

两部分建筑体量，被建筑东西方向轴线上的公共广场分隔开，图书馆主入口也位于这个被抬高的广场两侧，可经由大台阶到达广场，进入图书馆南北两区，同时可由广场到达书香公园。通过提供穿越场地的捷径，引导众多市民进入这两部分建筑，建立了建筑内外空间的功能性连接，将图书馆及其多元化的文化活动，整合到城市结构中。The two building volumes is separated by a public square on the east-west axis of the building. The main entrance of the library is also located on both sides of the elevated square, which can be reached with the steps. Visitors can enter the both north and south parts of the library, the park is also connected by the square. By providing shortcuts in the site, visitors are guided into these two building parts, creating functional connections between the interior and exterior of the building, integrating the library and its diverse cultural activities into the urban structure.
