Kid’s Republic Architecture

Kids Library
A blog post about architecture for a children’s bookstore with great photos.

Kid’s Republic is a book haven for the children of Beijing. It opened in 2005 and was designed by Japanese architect Keiichiro Sako. It’s stocked with picture books from all over the world and has an activity room that hosts storytelling events and anime screenings. It also offers one of the coolest settings for both kids and grown to interact with books.
