Another beautiful book space appears in China, this one in a paddy field January 30, 2020 – Posted in: books in design, bookshops, Content, Interior Design

Beijing based Trace Architecture Office has devised this beautiful bookshop to sit between the walls of an old abandoned building in rural China.

The shop sits on a paddy field on the outskirts of Xiadi Village in Fuijian province and will be operated by Librairie Avant-Garde, an independent book shop with locations across China.

You might remember the name Librairie Avant-Garde, for many believe their shop beneath Wutaichan Stadium in Nanjing is the most beautiful bookshop in China. 

Of course, this shop is called Paddy Field Bookstore!
